There is no standard or fixed validity for trademarks that applies universally across all jurisdictions. The duration of trademark validity can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the specific laws governing trademarks in that country or region.

In many countries, trademark registrations are initially granted for a specific period, commonly 10 years. However, this initial validity period can differ, and some jurisdictions may have shorter or longer durations.

To maintain trademark validity beyond the initial period, trademark owners are typically required to file renewal applications and pay the requisite renewal fees. By complying with these renewal requirements at specified intervals, trademark protection can be extended indefinitely in many jurisdictions.
