In theory trade marks can last forever. They are the only form of registered intellectual property that have this character. Patents, designs and copyright all expire. But so will your trade mark too if you fail to use it or renew it. A trade mark is valid for 10 years from the date of application and is renewable for 10 year periods that may continue indefinitely. There is also a short grace period for renewal under s 79 of the Trade Marks Act 1995 (Cth).
If you want information on renewing your trade mark registration in Australia then please send an email with the following information
