RECORDAL OF CHANGES
Over a period of time, there may be changes that may take place in respect to ownership or transfer of rights to a trademark by way of assignment, merger or licensing. In addition, there may be a change in details of the IP owners i.e. either change of name or address. Hence, the IP owners and their representatives may be required to perform IP recordals as stand-alone tasks before the Trademark Offices to record such changes.
