What is a Trademark?

Making your company or business stand out from all the others is easier said than done. However, legally registering a trademark is a great way of doing this. A trademark is a logo, word or phrase – such as a tag-line – that is exclusively registered to your company. This logo or phrase will represent your company or brand, and will therefore be what consumers associate with your product or service. It’s useful to note that they can only be distinctive for your goods or services, and must not to describe the goods themselves. You may not trademark anything illegal or use branding that’s offensive or already being used, if this is the case, your trademark application may be rejected.


Why should you register your trademark?

Giving your company a unique logo or tag-line differentiates your brand from the competition. The association will make it stick in peoples’ minds so that they can recall and recommend you to others. This makes the brand more effective overall. For example, when you think of cola drinks, the red and white Coca Cola logo springs to mind, or when you think of McDonald’s, the yellow ‘M’ is what you picture. It makes your brand recognizable. Additionally, registering your trademark will allow you to take legal action against any other company that copies or ‘models’ their logo or tag-line too closely on yours, thereby illuminating competition. On the other hand, it’s legal proof of the authenticity of your company, brand and professionalism. It also proves that you have created a unique concept, brand and design.
