Types of trademark in Singapore

What is type of trademark in Singapore?

Trademark is defined as “A mark capable of being represented graphically and which is capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one person from those of others and may include the shape of goods, their packaging and a combination of colours”. (Trade Marks Act, 1999).

A trade mark is a sign such as a word, device, brand, shape, color or any combination of these elements, which is capable of being graphically represented and being used by a person in the course of trade to distinguish his goods or services from another person’s. In Singapore three-dimensional signs (shapes) and sounds can also be registered as trademarks, however trademarks based on taste and smell are not recognized.

There are three main types of trademarks for products in Singapore: Collective/Certification marks; Conventional trade marks; Non-Conventional trademarks. See the section below for a detailed list of trademarks used in Singapore.
