Intellectual Property Rights are an essential asset class for any business, startup, or enterprise. Developing and protecting intellectual property such as Trademark, Patent, Designs, and Geographical Indication (GI) with proper registration can help them to gain a competitive advantage. It is essential to obtain trademark registration for the business name/trade name under the Trademarks Act 1999.
A trademark provides protection to the owner of the mark by ensuring the exclusive right to use it or to authorize another person/entity to use the same in exchange for an agreed consideration.
A trademark (also known as brand name) may be a name, signature, word, letter, numeral, symbol, logo, device, packaging label, tagline, the shape of goods, or any combination thereof to distinguish it from other similar goods or services originating from another seller. It is a distinctive sign which identifies certain goods or services as those produced or provided by a specific person or enterprise.
