A trade mark is a sign used by a business to help protect a brand and to distinguish their goods or services. Typically a trade mark will consist of a word or device (often referred to as a logo). More unusual signs, for example colours or sounds, can also function as trade marks.
Registration of a trade mark in a country provides an owner with the exclusive right to use that mark for the goods or services for which it has been registered in that country. Registration is a significant deterrent to other businesses and provides incontrovertible evidence of a claim to legal rights. Unregistered marks which have been used and which have acquired a reputation may also enjoy legal protection in a number of countries. However, it is typically easier to enforce a registered trade mark against unauthorised use.
