Trade Mark Registration FAQs

What is a trademark?

The UK Intellectual Property Office defines trademarks as the “sign which can distinguish your goods and services from those of your competitors”.
After the trademark is registered, it can be utilized in marketing products or services, guaranteeing protection against imitation.

Why should I register a trademark?

Put plainly, failing to register your trademark leaves it vulnerable to being claimed by others, posing immediate risks to your business and any ongoing product or service development. Obtaining a registered trademark safeguards your brand by equipping you with the means to prevent others from using similar signs or trademarks to benefit from your business's reputation. If you do not protect your trademark by registering it then you may find you are legally prevented from expanding your business.

What is the difference between trademark and copyright?

While copyright and trademarks fall under the category of intellectual property, they serve distinct legal purposes. Copyright provides creators of original works with specific rights regarding their use and distribution. These rights are automatically granted in the UK and do not necessitate registration. They cover various creations such as literary, artistic, musical, and dramatic works but are limited to a finite duration.
On the other hand, a trademark serves to identify products or organizations and typically appears as a logo or brand name. It distinguishes goods and services from those of others, enabling trademark owners to take legal action against unauthorized use of their brand. Unlike copyright, trademark rights are not automatically conferred and require proactive safeguarding. Therefore, trademark registration is crucial for anyone looking to legally safeguard their brand.

How long will it take for my trademark to become approved?

The duration for trademark registration can vary based on whether objections arise. A simple trademark application typically requires around three to five months for registration in the UK.

Once I register a trademark, what rights will I have?

Obtaining a trademark provides you with the authority to deter unfair competition from your competitors. You can defend your mark against infringements.

How long do I retain my trademark registration?

UK trademark remains registered for a period of 10 years from the date it was filed and can be renewed for a further 10 years.
