A trade mark is a sign which is used to distinguish the goods and/or services of one undertaking from those of other undertakings. In other words, a trade mark can be thought of as a brand name.
A registered trade mark allows the owner to stop others from using identical or confusingly similar trade marks in relation to identical or similar goods and/or services.
As with patents, registered trade marks are national rights and so applications must be filed in each country in which you would like to seek protection.
