First, you need to fill our questionnaire – it will help us to understand your business and your trademark.

 

After that we will file a trademark application on your behalf and take care of the whole process – do not worry, will be in touch with you all the time and you will know exactly what is going on!

 

After officials examine your trademark to see if everything is in place, it is necessary to publish the trademark to let a third party, if they have a valid reason, present oppositions to the registration of your trademark. If nobody files an opposition, your trademark is registered and registration is published.

Trademark Registration FAQ

What kinds of trademarks can and can’t be registered?

The main requirement is that your trademark must be unique and original and it must distinguish you from your competitors. A word, phrase, symbol, logotype and/or combination of these are acceptable while creating a trademark. In some jurisdictions (e.g. the European Union) the list may also include sounds, colours, patterns, holograms, motions multimedia and other categories of marks that can be registered and protected.

Your trademark can’t be offensive, describe or be over suggestive to the goods or services it will relate to, be misleading, be too common or non-distinctive, look too similar to state flags, hallmarks and other similar symbols. In some countries, a word trademark will also have to comply with official language requirements and may not be protected where used as a slang etc.

How do I know if I have intellectual property?

If it is a unique and original work which was created by you or created specifically to you by a third party, and if its object is not merely an idea you already have intellectual property. But the main question is whether such creation can be protected and what would be the means for its protection.

Basically, you have intellectual property if you:
• Created, designed or invented it (and it meets the requirements for copyright, trademark, patent or a design);
• Bought or received an intellectual property right from a creator or a previous owner in any other legitimate way;
• Have or would like to have a brand that can be trademarked.
• Your brand or logotype, creation, design and/or invention is first of all and foremost original.

What is a trademark?

Trademarks are signs used in trade to identify products. Your trademark is the symbol your customers use to pick you out. It distinguishes your company’s products and services from your competitors.

A trademark for a company is as important as a marketing strategy, which ultimately helps to succeed in long-term plans. Trademarks protect brand names, logos, slogans and other intangible property of a company. Trademark owners can stop other people from using their mark on the same or similar goods or services.

A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol, logotype and/or combination of these that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods and services of one party from those of another. Trademarks are key to giving your business a distinctive character, allowing it to distinguish from the rest. Trademarks enable consumers to make quick, confident and safe purchasing decisions. A trademark is what helps to recognize your products and services in the competitive market. They have an ability to capture the essence of your brands and the energy, investment and know-how that goes into them.
There are various roles a trademark can play in a company, and all of them are crucial to the success of your business. All the value of a brand – its philosophy, know-how, its staff, its products, its intangible assets – is encapsulated in one symbol: its trademark. Thus, when choosing a mark, remember that you will most likely be using it for a long time and that your brand will grow over time.

What is the difference between a registered and unregistered trademark?

You can protect and build upon your trademark if you register it. A registered trademark will prevent and stop third parties from using your trademark and allows you to take legal action against anyone who uses it without permission, they have stronger legal brand protection. You must choose your mark carefully, because a trademark is the legal embodiment of everything your brand stands for. A registered trademark will prevent and stop third parties from using your trademark and allows you to take legal action against anyone who uses it without permission.

Unregistered trademark may enjoy copyright protection and can be protected in jurisdictions affording protection based on trademark’s use in commerce. In a particular country does not protect unregistered trademarks (in most European countries no unregistered trademark protection exist), third parties can register it before you and prevent you from continuing to use it. Even for those countries where unregistered trademarks are protected you are well advised to register it in order to obtain the best protection.
