But first and foremost, what does it mean to register a trademark?

Many business owners decide to trademark their business or brand in a bid to ensure that it is protected. For example, if another company uses your trademarked assets without permission or replicates your brand in anyway, you are perfectly in your right to seek legal action. After all, your business name and your ideas are accessible to wider audiences and are constantly at risk of being replicated if not protected.

 

Creating value in your business

Another reason many businesses choose to trademark their brand is that it creates value in your business and the vast majority of companies prefer to invest in a business that has trademarked its main products, brand or name!
