A trademark allows you to distinguish your products and services amongst similar products and services from your competitors. As its value grows over time, a trademark (TM) is an asset that needs to be reliably protected.
Legal protection of a trademark is local in nature, meaning it is valid only in the territory in which it has been registered. If you plan to enter foreign markets, you need to seek legal protection in the relevant countries of export for the associated products or services.
“Is trademark registration mandatory?”
State registration of a trademark is a mandatory procedure if you have long term plans for your business and want to stand out in the market. It is highly beneficial, as the owner receives a number of undeniable advantages and rights.
Exclusive right to use
Any use of TM without the permission of the owner is illegal and has legal repercussions.
First level domain registration
Only owners of a registered trademark for goods and services can get a domain in the UA zone.
Opportunity to Sell a Franchise
A trademark can be an independent product and can be leased for temporary use (including franchising).
Brand Value Increase
Successful brands only rise in value over time: think of Coca-Cola, Nike, and Tesla. Your brand could be next.
Legal security of goods
The right to initiate legal proceedings against unauthorized use of your trademark.
Advertising TM is much cheaper than advertising the actual products or services.
Choice of class and type of TM
Based on the principles and financial feasibility of the trademark, a selection is made from one of 45 possible trademark classes.
