How to protect your brand?

Brand symbols (signs) can be protected by a trademark, almost indefinitely. It is mainly used to protect the name (verbal) and logo (visual), but it can also be used to protect placement of an element on the packaging, repetiton of an element, animation or sound, for example.

The requirement is that the customer is able to recognize your brand on the basis of such sign and not confuse it with another brand. A trademark does not protect signs that are deceptive, contrary to good morals, or, for example, resembling religious or state symbols.

    Frequently asked questions

    A trademark is the best way to protect your brand.

    It protects any sign which is sufficiently capable of distinguishing the products or services of one person from those of another. Simply put, this means that with its help you will appropriatelly and legally strengthen your brand in the market and be able to take more effective action against plagiarists.

    It is mainly used to protect the name and logo, but it can also be used to protect placement of an element on the packaging, repetiton of an element, animation or sound, for example. Read our article on types of trademarks to find out more. Read about all trademark options and categories here.

    The main advantage of a trademark is that its owner can prohibit anyone from using a sign that is identical or confusing with the trademark. These rights are acquired for the same or similar goods or services in the territory where the trademark is registered.

    With a trademark, you get a monopoly on the use of the sign in the given territory, giving you a privileged position for any disputes concerning these rights.

    A trademark protects the signs that make up your brand. This includes the logo, the name, the colour or, for example, the placement of the sign on the product.

    While a trademark protects, for example, the packaging of a product, an industrial design protects its shape.

    When it comes to physical products, it’s particularly beneficial to combine these two types of protection. Consider sneakers as an example – safeguard their shape with an industrial design and the distinctive color of the sole with a trademark.

    Having a trademark won’t hurt, but it might not be a wise investment, especially if you run a service establishment in a small town and named it after yourself (e.g., Jane Example Hair Salon).

    Conversely, a trademark becomes essential when you’re gearing up to enter the market and might catch the eye of other market players. The absence of a trademark, providing exclusive rights to use your name for specific products and services, leaves room for anyone to exploit these situations and piggyback on your success.

    By monitoring trademark databases, a practice known as trademark watching.
