Hong Kong trademark registration services: why trademark registration in Hong Kong with Coddan is important? Registering a trademark in Hong Kong is an essential element of legally protecting a company's products or services, especially so in this Special Administrative Region of China where trademark infringements and counterfeiting are commonplace. If approval is granted by the Intellectual Property Department, which handles trade mark registration in Hong Kong, the trademark - whether a slogan or symbol - represents only a particular product or service and no one else may use it. If a rival firm does start using a trademark that's the same or similar, you'll be legally entitled to take action against them.

Trademark registration in Hong Kong achieved by lodging a formal application with the Hong Kong Patent & Trademark Office. With this Hong Kong registering trademark package we will provide the following services: search existing registered trademarks with trademark office; filing a HK trademark application for one class of goods or services; the opportunity to register a trademark or logo in additional classes; the certificate of trademark registration will be send by post.
As a warning sign to other companies, when your trademarks approved, you'll be able to put the ® sign beside it, showing that it has been registered and is therefore protected - it's not permitted to use this sign if the trademark has not been registered. If a dispute does arise with a competitor firm, being able to show you own your trademark will be essential to proving your claim that it is, and your trademark certificate will do just that.
Another important aspect of registering a trademark is that no one else will be able to register the same or a similar one later, as it won't be permitted by the Intellectual Property Department. In addition, a limited company that has trademarked products or services will have higher value that those that don't because they won't be protected from forgeries.
As a global city and major trading hub of intense competition among local and international companies and their brands, not having registered a trademark would leave a firm open to all sorts of threats and potentially imperil its future. It's therefore vital to be legally protected at this fundamental corporate level.
