Applications for Sounds Marks Now Possible

Registrations for sound marks was introduced by the new Trademark Act, Trademark Act (No. 3) B.E. 2559 (2016) (the Trademark Act), which came into effect on July 28, 2016. However, it was not until Ministerial Regulation No. 5 B.E. 2560 (A.D. 2017) (the “Ministerial Regulation”) was issued on September 1, 2017, that it became possible to file applications for sound marks in Thailand.

The application of a sound mark applicant must include a clear description together with a clear audio recording of the mark. In addition, the applicant may also submit musical notation, sonograph or other graphical representation along with the application in order to illustrate the sound.
