The purpose of a business trade mark
A trade mark is a type of intellectual property that distinguishes your products and services from those of another business. A trade mark can take many forms, like a business name, brand name, your business logo or even a distinctive phrase or colour.
By registering a trade mark, it prevents others from using the same or a similar trademark for the same kinds of goods or services as your product or service. It helps protect your brand and differentiate from others in the market.
It's important to note that registering a business name is separate to protecting your name or brand by registering a trade mark. Registering a business name doesn't stop other businesses from registering and trading under a similar name.
