Introduction to the Chinese Trademark Registration System​
  1. ​The Chinese Trademark Law stipulates that natural persons, legal persons or other organizations that need to obtain trademark exclusive rights for their goods or services in production and business activities shall apply to the Trademark Office for trademark registration.

  2. China has joined the Madrid International Trademark System. Therefore, in addition to submitting a Chinese trademark registration application to the Trademark Office, it can also submit an application for Madrid international trademark registration.

  3. Any mark that distinguishes the goods of natural persons, legal persons or other organizations from those of others, including words, figures, letters, numbers, three-dimensional signs, colour combinations and sounds, and combinations of the above elements, all of which can be used as trademarks to apply for registration.

  4. If the trademark is not used for three consecutive years after registration, any third party has the right to request the cancellation of the trademark.

I got the registration certificate, the goods produced now are somewhat different from those described in the registration certificate, will they be protected?
