Fake trade mark notices
According to the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore ("IPOS"), companies should be cautious about fake trade mark notices demanding payment for registering trade marks. Several such instances have been reported until this day. The notices look authentic but these have no connection with IPOS or any such authorities. Companies need to be observant, and review any such notices with utmost care, so that they do not fall prey to such a mischief. Consult a lawyer or any knowledgeable consultant if you are in doubt.
