Why do we need a trade mark ?

  • Registering a trade mark makes it easier and less costly to prevent others from using your business identity. Use of your trade mark, brand or business identity can lead to confusion for your customers and damage your reputation.
  • Registration of a trade mark gives the owner exclusive rights.  For example, if you register an Australian trade mark, it gives you the exclusive right to use the trade mark in Australia and its external territories.
  • A registered trade mark will prevent your competition registering a mark which is the same or similar and related to your product or service.
  • A registered trade mark may be used to prevent the importation of infringing goods into Australia.
