What is a trademark ? Basically, A trademark is a â€œbrandâ€? or â€œlogo" that you can use to distinguish your product from those of your competitors. Through a registered trademark, you can protect your brand or logo by restricting other people from using the same.
For eg. The logo of NIKE and their tagline JUST DO IT is a registered trademark. It provides them protection because now it is illegal to use the same logo or tagline.
Why trademark registration is so important ? A registered trademark provides you Legal Protection and Unique Identity which means you become the legal owner of the registered trademark and no other person have the right to use your registered trademark without your prior permission. A trademark is a symbol of trust as it creates a sense of trust, goodwill and quality in the minds of your customer that is unique to your business. Registered Trademarks can even be sold, franchised or commercially contracted. Trademark registration creates an intellectual property, which is an intangible asset for an organization.
