Can a trademark be sold? Can a trademark be transferred?23-05-10
Selling or transferring ownership of your trademark is decided by the individual or company that owns it. There are no legal restrictions to selling or transferring rights related to a trademark as long as you are the rightful owner. The only conditions are that it should be valid (alive), registered (not under process), and have a registration certificate. Once you are ready to transfer ownership of a trademark by selling it or giving it away, the transfer of ownership should be recorded at the trademark office. This transfer of ownership is referred to as an assignment of a trademark and is registered by filing an assignment application to transfer the ownership of a trademark.
