UKIPO Trademark Services

A trademark is a sign which can distinguish your goods and services from those of your competitors. Trademark is also referred to as “brand”. A Trdaemark should be distinctive for the goods and services you provide
In other words they can be recognised as signs that differentiates your goods or service as different from someone else’s.

You can register your trade mark to protect your brand or the name of your product or service. Trademark registration enables the owner of the Trademark to:

  • Take legal action against anyone who uses his brand without permission
  • Take legal action against counterfeiters
  • Put the ® symbol next to his brand
  • To claim the brand as his own and warn others against using it
  • Sell and license his brand
