When you first set up a private company marketing it can be one of the hardest tasks; particularly in a competitive market place. Making your company stand out by using unique branding can be a strong tool in taking your company forwards. Many firms are now recognisable by their trademark, whether that's a logo or strap line. These trademarks hold strong connotations for customers which are then associated with the quality of the product or the service the companies offered. So after building up your company's brand how would you feel if someone used it to promote their work, potentially damaging your brand and reputation?
Protecting your company by registering a trademark in the UK: the only way to stop this from happening is to register your trademark with the intellectual property office in the UK. That way no one can use your branding if they're in the same sector as yourself. A trademark can incorporate either a logo, limited company name, business name, or a slogan, or all of them, which is used to recognise the company. It is also possible to trademark distinct services or goods that can also have a UK trademark attached to them to stop other businesses copying an original idea.
Many companies think that by registering their company name their brand is protected, however without a UK registered trademark this is not the case. Once a registered trademark is in place you have the ability to sue anyone that is using your trademark. Any counterfeiters potentially using your brand on illegal goods could also be criminally prosecuted.
The benefits to register a UK trademark: a trademark lasts up to ten years in the UK in the first instance and can then be extended indefinitely. The UK trade mark registration process is not and expensive and time consuming as many think and a trademark can be granted as quickly as four months on a fast tracked application, or six months on a normal application. When your trademark is registered you can be confident in building your brand knowing that it cannot be damaged by other companies using your good name to look for business. A registered trademark also means you are able to use the "®" logo giving customers an added confidence in your company.
