Trademark Registration

Basically, a trademark is a “brand” or “logo” that you can use to distinguish your product from those of your competitors. Through trademark registration or you can say logo registration/brand registration, you can protect your brand or logo by restricting other people from using the same. For e.g. the logo of NIKE and their tagline JUST DO IT is a registered brand name. By trademarking your logo or brand, you are providing it protection as it is illegal to use the same logo or tagline.
A registered trademark is an intangible asset for a business and is used to protect the company’s investment in the brand or symbol. After Trademarking your logo or brand, a registered TM number which works as trademark license is assigned within a period of three days by Trademark department but it takes almost two years for it to be registered so that you can use to use ® symbol with your brand name. It is always advised to get Trademark registration or brand name registration because getting your company registered will not protect your brand against those who might initiate using identical or similar marks. Before trademarking, make sure to check trademarks availability and it should be your first priority if you want to start a company. Trademark public search is an important step before trademark registration. You need to do a close search for trademark name as it will help you to avoid future problems.
