A Trademark is a name or symbol, like logos and brand names that help to distinguish the goods and services of different persons. It must be capable of distinguishing your goods and services from those of your competitors. It can be words, logos or a combination of both. A Trademark is any mark that distinguishes a product or service provided by one company from products or services provided by others. A Trademark enables customers to easily recognize and identify your goods and/or services in the marketplace. Trademarks exist at common law by virtue of acquiring goodwill from extensive use. However, a registered Trademark takes precedence over common law Trademarks, and registration of a Trademark, whether used or proposed to be used, is recommended. You don’t need to have commenced use of a Trademark in order to file an application for it. So long as you intend to use the Trademark in future, it is advisable to commence an application immediately under “Proposed Use”. Otherwise someone else can file a similar application ahead of you and you will be precluded from applying for or using it when you finally desire to commence using it.
