Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of officially registering your trademark, even in countries that follow common law rules?

Registering your trademark officially, even in countries that follow common law rules, offers numerous benefits. Firstly, it provides a legal presumption of ownership nationwide, and public notice of your claim to the trademark. This is crucial in preventing potential conflicts and disputes over the mark. Secondly, it gives you the right to bring legal action concerning the trademark in federal court. This can be a powerful tool in protecting your brand from infringement. Moreover, registering your trademark can also be beneficial on an international level. Many countries only award trademark protections if the mark is officially registered. Therefore, even if you don't plan on doing business in a particular country, registering your mark there can ensure that you have the right to act against any infringement in those locations. This can be particularly important in today's global marketplace, where your brand can easily reach consumers in other countries through the internet.
