A registered brand, or trademark, is a proof of ownership of your intangible asset, that gives you exclusive and excluding use on national territory.
Why is a brand important?
Consumers that are satisfied with a product or service tend to buy it again and recommend it, and for that is indispensable that they can remember and distinguish it from similar alternatives.
Why should I obtain the trademark?
A trademark gives value to your brand and provides legal protection, preventing others from copying your brand, or confuse consumers with a similar one. It's also a must for investors or for obtaining public funding for your enterprise.
Registering your trademark today is way cheaper than having a third party register it tomorrow.Contact us
