TRADEMARK & REGISTRATION
Trademarks are Symbol, Designs or Words, Legally Registered or Established by use as Representing a Company or Product.
1. PROPOSED TRADEMARKS
Registering a trademark gives you the exclusive right to use that trademark. If another business starts using your registered trademark, they will be infringing on your rights as the trademark owner.
Determine if another company has used your trademark before you register it, and whether the phrase or logo might be confusing with an existing mark. A trademark search can help prevent costly lawsuits and avoid unnecessary changes to your name.
2. ADVISING CLIENTS AS TO THE REGISTRABILITY OF A MARK
Registering your trademarks, including the trademark ownership and division information, can provide a range of benefits. It will lay out the ownership rights in your brand, protecting you against infringement suits that might otherwise result in financial damage to your company.
It will put your competitors on notice as well as members of the public that you hold ownership rights in these brands so they can avoid infringing them and are instead compelled to respect them.
