What is assignment of trademark means? if "Alpha" , a manufacturing company has registered trademark in India for all its products and if that Alpha company assign its trademark to "Beta", a distributor company then will Beta has exclusive right to use such mark within India? can Alpha continue to manufacture products with same trade mark for the purpose of selling products through Beta only? (Beta is consenting for same)
What will be trademark rightst of Alpha if it assings trademark to Beta in india and if Alpha is exporting its products in other countries then will it cause infringment of trademark for Beta?
What will be the rights and remedies for Beta if Alpha stops supplying to Beta?
Also explain what is assignment with goodwill of business means?
We are Beta company and wish to bind Alpha to supply us on perpetual basis so what role will assignment of trademark play in the said strategy? please advise what to do? which agreement shall we enter into to acheive this purpose. (we dont want to go for Joint venture).
Please advise on this very urgently as we are very much in need of expert opinion on this issue before negotiating with Alpha. (any further advises except on above queries are welcome) Thank you.
