One way to protect your intellectual property is to register your trade mark. In today’s world of the internet and free-access to global resources, it is the only way to protect your brand.
What is a trade mark?
A trade mark is a valuable marketing tool used to identify the products and/or services provided by the trader, and to distinguish those products and services from those of competitors. It can be either one of, or a combination of, a word, phrase, letter, symbol, number, sound, smell, design, image, shape, logo, picture or aspect of packaging.
Why register a trade mark?
Registering a trade mark is important when creating and protecting a brand. It will eliminate the possibility of others using that brand and damaging its’ reputation. The trader will have the exclusive rights to use the trade mark for a period of 10 years, which then may be renewed.
