What is a Trademark?

A trademark is a sign that you can use to distinguish your business’ goods or services from those of other traders.  A trademark can be represented graphically in the form of your company’s logo or a signature.

 Through a registered trademark, you can protect your brand (or “mark”) by restricting other people from using its name or logo.

Once acquired, a trademark can last indefinitely as long as you renew it every 10 years. Because a registered trademark is a form of IP, you can license or assign it to others.
