Arms of city, etc. [45 of 1979].

13. Subject to the next following rule, where a representation of the armorial bearings, insignia, orders of chivalry, decorations or flags of any state, Colony, city, borough, town, place, society, body corporate, institution or person appears on a mark, the Registrar, before proceeding to register the mark, shall, if he so require, be furnished with a consent to the registration and use of such emblems from such official or other person as appears to the Registrar to be entitled to give consent, and in default of such consent he may refuse to register the mark.

Living persons or persons recently dead.

15.

Each application for the registration of the same mark in a different class shall be treated as a separate and distinct application, and in all cases where a trade mark is registered under the same official number for goods in more than one class, the registration in respect of the goods included in each separate class shall be deemed to be a separate registration for all the purposes of the Act.

PROCEDURE ON RECEIPT OF APPLICATION FOR REGISTRATION OF A TRADE MARK

Search.

26. Upon receipt of an application for the registration of a trade mark in respect of any goods the Registrar shall cause a search to be made, amongst the registered marks, and pending applications, for the purpose of ascertaining whether there are on record in respect of the same goods or description of goods any marks identical with the mark applied for, or so nearly resembling it as to render the mark applied for likely to deceive or cause confusion, and the Registrar may cause the search to be renewed at any time before the acceptance of the application, but shall not be bound to do so.

Acceptance, absolute of conditional objection.

27. After such search, and consideration of the application, and of any evidence of use or of distinctiveness or of any other matter which the applicant may or may be required to furnish, the Registrar may accept the application absolutely, or he may object to it, or he may express his willingness to accept it subject to such conditions, amendments, disclaimer, modifications or limitations as he may think right to impose.

(1) If the Registrar is willing to accept the application subject to any conditions, amendments, disclaimer, modifications or limitations, he shall communicate such willingness to the applicant in writing, and, if the applicant objects to such conditions, amendments, disclaimer, modifications, or limitations he shall, within one month from the date of the communication apply for a hearing or communicate his considered objections in writing, and if he does not do so he shall be deemed to have withdrawn his application.

(2) If the applicant does not object to such conditions, amendments, disclaimer, modifications or limitations, he shall forthwith notify the Registrar in writing, and alter his application accordingly.

(1) The decision of the Registrar, at a hearing as in rule 28 or rule 29, or without a hearing if the applicant has duly communicated his considered objections or considered reply, in writing, and has stated that he does not desire to be heard, shall be communicated to the applicant in writing, and if the applicant objects to such decision he may within one month by applying upon Form TM-No. 3 require the Registrar to state in writing the grounds of, and the materials used by him in arriving at, his decision.

(2) In a case where the Registrar makes any requirements to which the applicant does not object, the applicant shall comply therewith before the Registrar issues such statement in writing. The date when such statement is sent to the applicant shall be deemed to be the date of the Registrar's decision for the purpose of appeal.

Disclaimer.

31. The Registrar may call on an applicant to insert in his application such disclaimer as the Registrar may think fit, in order that the public generally may understand what the applicant's rights, if his mark is registered, will be.

Advertisement of series.

38. When an application relates to a series of trade marks differing from one another in respect of the particulars mentioned in section 26(3), the applicant may be required to supply a printing block (or more than one if necessary) satisfactory to the Registrar of any or of each of the trade marks constituting the series; or the Registrar may, if he thinks fit, insert with the advertisement of the application a statement of the manner in which the several trade marks differ from one another.

Advertisement under section 22 or section 49.

Evidence in support of application.

44. If an opponent leaves no evidence, he shall, unless the Registrar otherwise directs, be deemed to have abandoned his opposition but, if he does leave evidence, then, within one month from the receipt of the copies of declarations the applicant shall leave with the Registrar such evidence by way of statutory declaration as he desires to adduce in support of his application and shall deliver to the opponent copies thereof.

Evidence in reply by opponent.

45. Within one month from the receipt by the opponent of the copies of the applicant's declarations the opponent may leave with the Registrar evidence by satutory declaration in reply, and shall deliver to the applicant copies thereof. This evidence shall be confined to matters strictly in reply.

Security for costs.

50. Where a party giving notice of opposition or an applicant sending a counter-statement after receipt of a copy of such notice neither resides nor carries on business in Trinidad and Tobago, the Registrar may require him to give security, in such form as the Registrar may deem sufficient, for the costs of the proceedings before the Registrar, for such amount as to the Registrar may seem fit, and at any stage in the opposition proceedings may require further security to be given at any time before giving his decision in the case.

Costs is uncontested case.

51. In the event of an opposition being uncontested by the applicant, the Registrar in deciding whether costs should be awarded to the opponent shall consider whether proceedings might have been avoided if reasonable notice had been given by the opponent to the applicant before the notice of opposition was lodged.
