An Introduction to IP – Trade Marks

5th February 2021, 9:00 am

Trade marks are an essential part of doing business, and can come in a number of forms – such as words, numerals, graphic designs, shapes, colours and even sounds.  A trade mark is a sign used to distinguish your goods/services from those of other businesses.  Registering a trade mark can help the owner to stop others using the same or a similar sign in a way that confuses customers, takes advantage of their reputation or damages their brand.

In this webinar, the fourth in our “Introduction to IP” series, Alexandra Nott and Adam Kellett discuss the sorts of trade marks that can be protected, the benefits of registering a trade mark, and the process for doing so.
