Ownership Transfer

Ownership transfer in trademark law refers to the process of transferring ownership or rights to a trademark from one party to another. This can occur through a variety of methods, including assignment, licensing, or inheritance.

Assignment is the most common method of ownership transfer, and it involves the transfer of ownership rights to the trademark from the current owner (assignor) to a new owner (assignee). The assignment must be in writing and signed by the parties, and must be recorded with the relevant trademark office in order to be legally recognized.
