Trademark registration: what is its importance?

A trademark is a type of intellectual property that consists of a recognizable sign, design, or expression that distinguishes one source’s products or services from those of others. Services are usually referred to as service marks or known as Brand Name. The owner of a trademark can be an individual, a business organization, or any legal entity. A trademark can be found on a package, a label, a voucher, the product itself, or on company property. To put it another way, trademarks serve to identify a specific entity as the source of goods or services.

A good trademark should be easy to say and remember while maintaining its uniqueness and distinctive character. A consumer’s decision to purchase goods or hire services is heavily influenced by the Brand Value and reputation a Brand Name possesses. It is a valuable intellectual asset for a company because it discourages competitors from using similar names or logos. Furthermore, our Legalraasta team assists with trademark registration and allows your customers to associate visual cues with your products, fostering brand loyalty.
