Your trademark may be your company's logo or slogan and it can also include other elements that are unique to you, including product designs and patents. We'll begin by carrying out a search of companies registered in the Republic of Ireland to see if anything similar to your trademark is already in use, and we'll then need to show that your trademark can only be identifiable with your company.
If someone tries to copy your company's products or services following registration of a trade mark in the Republic of Ireland, you'll be able to sue them in court and you'll most likely succeed. Not having this essential legal protection means anyone could claim your trademark by registering it themselves and then start producing products or services similar to yours, a prospect that could be financially devastating for your company.
A logo, if it is one which fits perfectly with your business and which you feel adds value to your company, is a valuable commodity which you will not want to lose. However, without registering your logo, someone else can easily come along and use it for their company, meaning that they are benefiting from all of the hard work that you have put into your logo and branding. You can register a logo as either a trademark or copyright it, but it may be best to register a trademark in Republic of Ireland to fully protect your logo.
Why choose a trade mark over copyright in Republic of Ireland? If you want to protect your logo properly, you may be better off registering it as a trademark. Registration of a trademark in Republic of Ireland means that it is easier to protect your logo and defend it if it is being used by another company without your permission. Whilst copyright does mean that legally another company cannot use your logo as their own, it is not suitable for any logo which does not have the requisite level of creative input to give it artistic merit, and copyright can also not protect the colours, name or design of the logo. This means that if you have a simple logo (and most businesses do), you may not be able to copyright it anyway.
What are the benefits of registering your logo in Republic of Ireland? Once you have registered your logo as a trademark, no one else will be able to use your logo as their own, or work under your logo without your permission. This helps your business to build and develop under your terms, and prevents an expensive name change or complete rebranding a way down the line.
Registration of a trade mark in the Republic of Ireland is fairly simple if you know how, but you can make the process easier with the help of Coddan, as we will be able to work on your behalf and with you to get your trade mark registered with the minimum of fuss. If you do want to register a trade mark, it may make you more comfortable to know what the process is, how much it will cost you and so on. Here is some more information about how to register a trademark in the Republic of Ireland.
Fill out our application form: simply enough, the easiest way to register your trade mark is just to fill out an application form with all of the information included about yourself and your trade mark. You will need to include a copy of your mark, which could be a word or an image but does need to be represented graphically, and a list of the goods and services that will come under the mark.
Remember that once the trade mark has been registered you will not be able to change or add to the list of goods and services, so you must be sure of what you are adding.
Submit the application form: you should then submit your application form, at which you will be given a filing date and an application number. These are important, so you should hold onto them until you hear back about your application and whether it has been successful or not. It will take a few weeks for your application to be reviewed, during which time it will be examined to ensure that your mark is original and acceptable.
Await your verdict: your trade mark may be refused, and then you will have the opportunity to argue your case for the mark to be accepted. If it is accepted then your trade mark will be entered into the Official Journal and will then last indefinitely, as long as you continue to renew the registration every 10 years.
There are many benefits associated with the registration of a trade mark in the Republic of Ireland, which is why so many businesses will trade mark their intellectual property as early as possible. It is not a very complicated process, and is even easier if you work with Coddan in order to register it as quickly and simply as possible, and costs just £600.00 to complete. Here are some of the major benefits of registering a trade mark.
Register a trademark in the Republic of Ireland to protect your work: a company's name and logo are probably their greatest asset. You build your customer base and brand on your logo and company name, meaning that if these were to be taken away from you you would have to start again almost at the beginning to rebuild your brand and customers. A trademark protects you from this. With a trade mark you are also able to provide a record of your trade mark so that no other company can use it and claim ignorance of it, as the trade mark is easily discovered within the Official Journal.
Others should be deterred from using your trade mark: a trade mark is a legal entity, and this means that other businesses and individuals will not want to get in the way of this just so that they can steal your logo or company name. There will be legal repercussions for anyone who does try to use your work, and this will deter other businesses much more than you yourself would be able to. Not only this, but the Trademark Office should refuse to register a trade mark for another company that is the same as or too similar to yours, adding another layer of protection.
There are many reasons to register a trademark in the Republic of Ireland if you have a business or brand that you are trying to build and make a success. A trademark needs to be registered within the country or countries that it intends to operate in, so if you want to do business in Ireland, your trademark should be registered there.
The easiest way for you to register your trademark is through Coddan, who know the process and are able to provide you with the help you need to get through the process quickly and simply. Some of the advantages of registration of a trademark in the Republic of Ireland are: -
Protecting your company name and branding: creating a company name, logo and branding, and applying this to all of your products in order to build a strong brand can take a long time and cost quite a bit of money. If you don't trademark your company name, logo and branding, someone else could easily move in and steal your name or logo and there is very little you can do about it. Registering a trademark protects your intellectual property.
Protecting your business from the competition: if you haven't registered a trademark for your business, anyone else is free to use your company name and carry out work in that name. This means that if they do a bad job, or consistently behave badly, you could find that your company name is damaged, and that you don't have a leg to stand on legally in order to prove that they are nothing to do with your business.
Building value in your business: potential clients may look up your business, and a registered company with a trademark will seem more official and make a client more comfortable than a company that is not registered. You are basically building the value of your company by registering it and protecting your work with a trademark, ensuring that customers are happier to choose you.
