It can be difficult to identify which elements of a brand can and should be protected.
Registration of a trade mark gives you the exclusive right to use it in your market sector.
What if someone is already using (or has registered) a similar name in relation to the same kinds of goods or services?
Knowing what, when and where to file a trade mark are the fundamental elements of brand protection.
Identifying primary markets in which to protect a trade mark is key.
It’s important that rights owners have measures in place to police their trade marks.
Variations of marks can protected by a single application, which can save you money and admin, however — this is only if the marks comply with strict criteria. Series marks are available in a number of countries, but this focuses on the UK.
A trade mark can be held by more than one party — but it’s important to ensure that everyone understands their rights in the event of a dispute…
Failure to keep up with changes can mean that rights become worthless.
The more successful a brand is, the more likely someone will want to take advantage of it and/or piggy-back on its success.
Your use and/or registration of a trade mark could face objection from a competitor.
Once a brand is protected, there are numerous options for generating revenue from it.
