Trademarks & Registration

If you sell online, export or do any international business your trademarked services or products are reachable internationally, thus it is highly recommended you register a trademark in every country and jurisdiction where you offer your services and products, even to afford you legal protection and security if a dispute arises about the use of your mark in commercial endeavors in foreign countries. As without a registration in those territories, your trademark is not protected and can be used by third parties.

Why should I use a trademark?

  • Trademark protects the rights to exclusively use the logo, image, phrases, or words to distinguish the goods or a service in the market, and;

  • Right to oppose and to bring cancellation later conflicting applications;

  • Right to file an infringement case against third parties for using a confusingly similar mark;

  • Right to license third parties to use the mark;

  • Right to receive damages for infringement;

  • Right to request for seizure of counterfeit goods;
