Enlist us so that you have the freedom of mind to focus on your core business activities.
A trademark is a logo/name/tagline etc that is used, or intended to be used, to identify one company from other. It is a brand name.
Trademarks are central business tools as they allow companies to establish their product's market image without having to worry that an inferior product will weaken their brand image or profit by misleading the consumer.
Trademarks include words, names, symbols and logos etc. Anything that clearly classifies your company can be a trademark, provided that it is for goods.
There is only one difference between a service mark and a trademark, that is, service mark is used to distinguish services in the stream of business. Like a trademark, a service mark can include words, names, symbols, logos etc.
Usually, trademarks appear on the actual product or its packaging. Service marks appear generally in advertising for the services. In general, when we use the term "trademark," we mean both trademarks and service marks.
In case of registered trademark, owner has the right to take action against person copying its trademark.
But if you didn’t register your trademark, you cannot take action against a 2nd party for using your logo/tagline or name.
In a nutshell, the registered trademark holder can take legal action against anyone who tries to copy the trademark without prior permission.
