Raipur is the capital of Chhattisgarh. It is industrially developed and has still much scope for further development of the new and existing industries as well. Further, it has been developed under the Central Government’s ‘Smart City Mission’, and has now blossomed into a world-class city with state-of-the-art infrastructure that also brings in social cohesion and local inclusiveness.
Raipur has become a major business hub in central India making it a suitable place for businesses. When it comes to business, whether new or existing, trademark registration plays an important role in the protection of your brand identity.
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 a brand name) may be a name, signature, word, letter, numeral, symbol, logo, device, packaging label, tagline, 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.
