What is a trade mark?
A trade mark is a distinctive mark or sign that a person uses in connection with their goods or services. It may include a name, symbol, slogan or a logo. As distinctive indicators of a business, trade marks are important assets in any commercial enterprise.
What will registering a trade mark do for your business?
Registering a trade mark ensures that you have the exclusive right to use that trade mark to identify your goods or services, or to authorise others to use them in return for payment. The objective of trade mark protection is to hinder the efforts of unfair competitors, such as counterfeiters, to use similar distinctive signs to market inferior products or services. In Australia, you can register a trademark under the Trade Marks Act 1995 (Cth). In this way, you can protect your trademark and use the law to persuade other businesses to refrain from using it without your permission.
