Don't infringe other's, don't let others infringe you.
You should protect your company name and logo, any inventions,
product designs or copyright. You should also avoid infringing
intellectual property rights of others.
It can take months to register your trademark, so it is
important to start the process as soon as possible, e.g as
soon as you have decided upon your brand name.
Is a Limited Company Name automatically protected?
No. Even if you have succesfully registered a limited company
name, it is not automatically protected as a brand name.
Using the TM sign against your logo
The Trademark sign () can often be used just 6 weeks
after you have applied to register your trademark. This can
often elevate your organisation's status in the eyes of your
potential customers. However, some IP professionals jokingly say that () stands for "Totally Meaningless" - because its use does not offer full protection.
Once the mark is fully registered, you can
use the Registered Trademark sign (®).
