Why would you want to trade mark your brand name?
By having a brand name that is unique and that no one else can copy guarantees your competitive advantage. If you are the only one who can offer that product or service under that specific brand name it means that your customers will never get confused. If someone else uses your brand without your say so, with a trade mark registration, you can take action to stop them.
Is your trade mark available?
There are many products and services on the market so you need to make sure that you choose a name that is not already a registered trade mark for the same goods or services. If you fail to register your trade mark, someone else may come along and register it for same goods or services and ask you to stop using the brand. Rebranding is expensive and has many hidden costs such as loss of goodwill and customers when you change domain names and social media names.
You cannot afford not to register your brand as a trade mark
You may think that trade mark registration is expensive. Official fees start from £170 and an attorney £270. A registration lasts for 10 years and can be renewed. Spread that cost over the many years you will be in business and the ten years your registration is valid for, you will see that trade marks are extremely affordable. Your brand name is packed with potential. Customers use it to buy from your business. The loss of these rights put the company in a very serious position. Loss could be from someone else registering the name and telling you that you are infringing a registered trade mark. Once the rights to Intellectual Property have been lost, a business has no choice but to fight to protect it, buy it back, or to rebrand, all of which pose a financial risk and the risk of loss of customers.
