Trademark Registration – Classification Guide Class 3 in Japan How to chose goods/services 2021年12月6日 2022年6月14日 Amazing DX Support Team I’ve decided to start selling cosmetics. First of all, I’ve prepared an impactful product name and logo for my new “face pack”, and I’d like to register it as a trademark to prevent others from copying it. Then don’t forget to specify class 3, which contains “cosmetics”!There are many beauty-related products in class 3. Please check it out. Considering the future product development of make-up products, I think it would be better to designate other goods in class 3. If they are included in the same class, the cost will be the same. But I wonder if “colored contact lenses” can also be designated in class 3…? 目次 IndexClass 3 is a category of cosmetics and detergents.Goods included in Class 3 and Goods NOT included in Class 3List of main goods in Class 3What should you do if you want to specify such items?
