The perks of International Registration

If you want to protect your trademark, there are a few things to consider:

  • How exactly will the trademark be used?
  • For which goods and/or services?
  • And – today's topic – where?

Proper trademark use and trademark marking

Registering and monitoring your trademark are important tools to protect your trademark. It is also important to make sure to properly use the trademark and to indicate to the public that a word, logo or other sign functions as your trademark by marking it accordingly.


Trademark searches: an essential step on the way to a new trademark

When developing a new brand, it is important to determine well before using the trademark and filing a trademark application whether there are any earlier conflicting trademark rights that could block use or registration. Trademark searches help to identify possibly conflicting earlier trademark rights and to better assess the risk associated with using and registering the brand.
