can I legally still trademark the name “klü”?
#1
If a company has already trademarked the name "klu", can I legally still trademark the name “klü”? Can the accent marks, umlaut vowels, etc. be used on trademarked words to essentially trademark your own names?

Trademark is for distinguishing your goods or services from others. So only by adding accent marks, vowels, it hardly distinguishes from other’s brand name as phonetically it will be same and so Trademark Registry will not approve the same. It will be considered as infringement of trademark. Any third party whose name is similar to yours can also file objection against your brand name. Also your customers will get confused. So your brand name should not be similar with others, even phonetically. If your brand name resembles with other, then in future if your brand grows and is much popular, it may happen that other company takes advantage of your brand name and your customers will go to them. It’s better to have a unique name.

Before proceeding to file trademark registration application, one must get availability check for the said brand name. To get assistance form trademark attorney, call us at 1800 313 4151 or drop us an e-mail at [email protected]
