Duration of trade marks


In Hong Kong, a registered trade mark is initially registered for 10 years.

The registration of the trade mark can be renewed for further periods of 10 years each, with the payment of renewal fees.

The registration of a trade mark can therefore last indefinitely if it continues to be renewed.

However, a registered trade mark may be challenged in revocation proceedings if it is not used in Hong Kong for a continuous period of 3 years.
