What is a Trademark
A trade mark is a name, symbol, sign, or other device identifying a product as unique. It is officially registered and legally restricted to the use of the owner or manufacturer. Trademarks can be your most valuable assets, and are often the only way of distinguishing your goods or services from those of others. Untapped Agency can advise you on trademark and copyright protection.
Registering a Trademark
A Trademarks Attorney’s work includes advising and assisting clients in relation to the selection and protection of new Trade Marks, including advising on suitable searching and filing strategies, the registration process and applicable laws, and best practice on use of a Trade Mark. A Trade Mark Attorney will also provide advice and assistance in relation to the enforcement, maintenance and renewal of registered trade marks, portfolio management and transactions involving trade marks, such as assignments and licences.
Trademarking, or the protection of brand names, logos and designs in every industry, is one of the most popular and growing asset management strategies for companies. A trademark license is an agreement between a trademark owner (“licensor”) and another party (“licensee”) in which the licensor permits the licensee to use its trademark in commerce. Trademarking helps to protect against infringement.
Successful licensing starts with protecting your intellectual property (IP).
Trademark registrations are required before brand licensing can commence. Untapped Agency can assist Brand Owners to seek a comprehensive trademark registration programme based on your future plans for licensing brand growth in Australia, New Zealand, China, USA, UK and the rest of the world.
Not really sure what a trademark is and why you should try to achieve this registration? A trademark is a sign that distinguishes your products or services from those of your competitors. Once registered, you may ‘lease’ your brand to a third party.
Trademark protection is one way to achieve intellectual property rights in IP management.
