Table of Content


A trademark is any phrase, symbol, word, design, or amalgamation to identify your services or goods. The trademark is a recognizable mark to distinguish your company from your competitors in the marketplace. Trademark refers to both service marks and trademarks. A trademark distinguishes goods, while service marks do the same for services.

There are different types of trademarks: device marks, word marks, colour marks, sound marks, shapes of goods and three dimension marks. Identifying the class is necessary before filing any application for registering a company name under a class. 

Did You Know? Class 27 trademark is the trademark filing classification in which each class represents a specific class of services or goods.

What is a Trademark? 

A trademark is a sign, phrase, design, symbol or combination of all these things that can distinguish the services or goods of one enterprise from those of other enterprises. Trademark denotes a specific service or product and legally differentiates it from other companies that offer the same products or services. A trademark stands for both service marks and trademarks.

A trademark signifies goods, while a service mark identifies a specific service. A trademark includes the following:

  • Provides legal security for your brand
  • Identifies the legal source of your services or goods
  • Facilitates guarding against fraud and counterfeiting.

A common idea about a trademark is that you legally own a phrase or word and can prevent public use once you trademark it. However, the trademark only signifies that the word or phrase is related to your brand’s goods or services, and you don’t have rights to the phrase or word in general.

For example, if you use a logo for your food business and trademark it, it will only work as a sign related to your unique food business. You can not stop others from using a similar logo for non-food-related businesses. However, choosing a unique trademark is easy to protect and more effective.

Registering a Trademark vs. Owning a Trademark

You can become a trademark owner when you start using your trademark with your services or goods. However, those established trademark rights are limited and only apply to the geographic area where your company provides the goods or services. For stronger national rights, you need to apply for a different registration of your trademark. Even though trademark registration is not compulsory, it provides better and broader rights protection than the unregistered trademark.

For example, if you use your logo for food service and maintain the business in your locality, it is not necessary to have a registered trademark. But once you start expanding and growing your business online, you should seek trademark protection and decide to apply for central registration. Registration will provide you nationwide security and individuality, thus protecting your business and trademark.
