Many businesses underestimate the importance of having their trade mark protected and do not realise that if they are not registered, someone else could steal their ideas and make money for themselves. Don't hesitate to invest in your future. Armadillo's in-house trade mark professionals can help you with every step of the process.
Trade marks, as well as being transferable property rights which can add value to a balance sheet, also enable their owners to prevent competitors from using the same or similar trade marks.
The first step towards registering your mark is to conduct a search to see if there are any existing marks which may conflict with your proposed name or logo.
THE IDENTICAL MARK SEARCH
This search does exactly as its name suggests and looks for identical words. It is also used to check the status of registered, pending and lapsed marks, or to look for proprietors, agents names or other details such as the goods listing.
It is not recommended that a decision to use or register a mark is made on this search alone.
The comprehensive search takes into account phonetic equivalents and misspellings. Armadillo supplies full goods and specification listings for all marks resulting from the search. If required, Armadillo can undertake common law searches, company searches and some investigative work in order to establish earlier rights. Armadillo can also advise on registrability or the likelihood of confusion or association with existing marks.
Armadillo's experienced trade mark professionals will assist you with every step of the trade mark registration process and the on-going brand management.
