Trademark class 12 is a globally accepted legal service for Indian and international registrations for various trademarks associated with vehicles and vehicle equipment. It has been internationally approved for the classification of goods and services generated within various economic sectors of any state. The objective is to help register variant trademarks belonging to goods and services.
Basics of Vehicles Manufacturing and Accessories
The term “vehicle” is generally understood to mean any self-propelled vehicle denoted by a vehicle, while the term "vehicle part" refers to any component of a car.
The trademark should include:
A stylized representation of an entire vehicle or its parts (e.g., the hood); or A portion that includes both shape and colour features (e.g., headlights).
The Registrar will accept claims for goods that do not meet all these requirements but constitute goods falling within this category:
- Cars, trucks, and other motor vehicles, whether new or used;
- Automotive engines and other mechanical parts thereof;
- Parts made from metal alloys;
- Parts made from plastics;
What comes under Class 12 Trademark?
Class 12 trademark contains, but is not limited to:
- Vehicles and Vehicle Parts. This consists of the following: automobiles, trucks, buses, and coaches; railway cars; aircraft (including helicopters); trains for public transport; trams and trolleybuses; road vehicles for commercial purposes other than those mentioned above (for example, trams).
- Agricultural Machines, Implements, Vehicles, and Tools. This includes all kinds of farming tools such as ploughs, cultivators, pumps; lawn mowers for lawn care purposes; lawn sprinklers that do not have wheels on their own but are attached to power units that can be used as tractors; shears made out of metal wire or metal cable with cutting edges sharp enough to cut through any kind of material including clothes materials such as cloths).
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
A UAV is an aircraft that is controlled remotely. There are many different types of UAVs, and they come in all shapes and sizes. Some examples include:
- The quadcopter—is a four-rotor helicopter flying as high as 1,000 feet above ground level (AGL). It has two main rotors on each side of its fuselage, allowing it to take off horizontally or vertically.
- The drone—is a fixed-winged drone that flies below 400 feet AGL and above 50 pounds in weight (depending on its size). These drones are used for military purposes against enemy targets or for surveillance purposes at airports where there may be sensitive information being collected from air travellers passing through them
Vehicles, their parts, and accessories
- cars, trucks, vans, and buses
- tires, wheels, batteries, and lights
- horns (but not air horns)
Examples of famous trademarks covered by class 12 trademarks include the Ford F150 pickup truck, Toyota Corolla Sedan or SUV; Honda Accord Coupe or Hatchback; Nissan Rogue Sport Utility Vehicle.
Agricultural machines, implements, and vehicles (not being motors or engines), shovels, spades, and hoes
Mechanical power-driven machines and plant devices used in agriculture are included in this class. The following types of machinery are commonly classified as agricultural implements:
- Tractors are used for pulling or pushing a plough through the soil. They are also known as "trucks" or "wheelbarrows" because they resemble these two items when working on the land. Tractors may be powered by internal combustion engines (internal combustion engines), which use fuel delivered to their cylinders via carburettors. Alternatively, they may be powered by electric motors that drive their wheels directly without using a starter system like an engine. Alternatively, more recently, some tractor models have been designed with hybrid electric drive systems that allow them to travel longer distances than other models while consuming less fuel per mile travelled at higher speeds!
- Aircraft - This covers all aircraft types, including light and heavy planes, helicopters and airships, gliders, and hot air balloons.
- Spacecraft - A spacecraft is an object that flies through outer space without any direct contact with the atmosphere. Spacecraft travel in orbits around other planets or moons or on their paths between Earth and other planets or moons outside our solar system (such as Mars).
- Components - The term "component" here means any item that is only a part which is protected through trademark.
- Spare Parts: Spare parts are those components that are not included within other items but can be installed on them for repair purposes.
- Engines: Engines include jet engines like turbine engines etc., propellers used for propulsion purposes
Bicycles are a prevalent mode of transport in India. They are used for commuting, leisure, and commercial vehicles. In rural areas, bicycles are also considered an essential mode of transportation because they allow people to reach places faster than walking.
Bicycles can be classified into two groups: pedal-powered bikes, which do not require any pedals while being propelled by human power, and mopeds which have both pedals and engines (usually motors).
Boats and other water-borne vehicles
Boats, ships, sailing vessels, fishing boats, and canoes are not in themselves trademarks, but they are often used as trademarks by their owners. The same applies to rafts which constitute a type of boat based on wood or plastic material to make it lightweight yet strong enough for use in rivers and lakes.
Bullock carts are a traditional form of transportation in India. They are used for transporting goods and people and hauling farm equipment. Bullocks pull the carts, which can hold up to two or three people at once, depending on their size. The bulls are usually harnessed with ropes on each side of their necks, so they know where to go when humans pull them.
Bullock carts can be found throughout rural areas of India. There is little access to roads but plenty of dirt paths that offer an alternative way of travelling between villages or townships (small settlements).
Cars, wagons, vans, motorbikes, and bicycles
The cars come under the category of class 12 and include the following:
- Cars, wagons, vans, and motorbikes.
- Vehicle parts, including frames and bodies; doors, hoods, or bonnets; windscreens; seats (including those for children); frames or panels with fittings for mounting other accessories onto a vehicle.
- Vehicle accessories such as headlamps (including combined lamps), rear lights, fog lamps, indicators, and turn signals are fitted onto vehicles that are not themselves designed for use as vehicles.
Land vehicles and their parts and accessories
The category of land vehicles includes cars, trucks, buses, tractors, and other equipment used for transportation on land.
Examples of land vehicle parts include seats, wheelsets, and chassis components used to build a car or truck. Land vehicles also have accessories such as windshields or headlights that are attached to them. Water vehicles' names also fall under the category of class 12 trademark.
Locomotives (not being toys)
A locomotive is a machine that uses mechanical power to pull other vehicles, such as trains and trams. There are many locomotives, but they all have one thing in common: they can move people or freight.
The word "locomotive" comes from the Latin word for "wheel" (locus). However, today the term has been used to refer to any vehicle that moves along tracks using wheels or tracks rather than being dragged by animals such as horses or donkeys—even though many forms transportation systems still use animals as their primary means of travel!
