Trade Marks



Trade marks distinguish the products and services of a company. They serve as an indication of the origin of a product and stand for the quality of a product. A trade mark can be extended for an unlimited period of time. For example, it is possible to protect words, images, slogans, and logos. Merely descriptive terms or image elements cannot be registered in general. Before applying for a trade mark, potential infringements with prior rights should be researched.
