Benefits of Trademarks Registration
- You have the exclusive right to use your registered trade mark as a brand name for the goods or services specified in the registration.
- You have the exclusive right to authorize other people to use your registered trade mark for the goods or services specified in the registration.
- You have a registered trade mark, which is personal property and can be sold
- You can be in a stronger position to stop other people from using your trade mark as their brand name on the same or similar goods or services specified in your trade mark registration.
Before starting the application process, it is important to have a clear idea of
- the mark you want to register
- the goods and/or services in connection with which you wish to register the mark
- whether you will be filing the application based on actual existing use of the mark or a bona fide intention to use the mark in the future.
Once you have chosen your mark, you must also be able to clearly and precisely identify the goods and/or services to which the mark will apply. The identification of goods and/or services must be specific enough to identify the nature of the goods and/or services. The level of specificity depends on the type of goods and/or services.

There are different options for protecting your invention with a patent. A national patent is enforceable only in your country and you will need to apply for foreign patents, should you require protection. Read More >>
Trademark & Patent
A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others.
Registration has several advantages, including notice to the public of the registrant's claim of ownership of the mark, a legal presumption of ownership nationwide, and the exclusive right to use the mark on or in connection with the goods or services set forth in the registration.
A patent is a limited duration property right relating to an invention.
