Why Trademark?

Trademarks are a way of identifying a unique product or service and is used to for branding and promotion of those products or services. They restrict the access for others to copy or imitate (“pass off”) your brand or product.

Trademarks are applied to original items, products or services for a business to use, licence or sell. They can be applied to items such as:

  • Logo
  • Phrase
  • Scent
  • Letter
  • Shape
  • Font
  • Number
  • Picture
  • Packaging or
  • A combination of these

The benefit of using a trademark lawyer is to ensure that before you lodge that mark you are applying for will have the best chance of being registered.

There is an assessment of the item that you wish to trademark and it must be unique and in the correct class. We save clients time by considering all the criteria is correct before lodgement.

Obtaining a trademark is a lengthy process and it does save time to the have application submitted correctly.

The essential items every business should Trademark

Here is a list of what every business should have trademarked:

  • Business Name
  • Logo
  • Slogan or USP
  • Product Packaging
  • Domain Name

Whilst most businesses apply for a name or have a company name this does not guarantee or prevent others from using it. A trademark will.

Having a trademark makes it very easy to prevent others from “passing off” or mimicking your brand and profiting from your hard work.

Branden L, Ravenhall

Excellent Service. PCL did a great job advising me about my rights and protecting my name and business goodwill. I can absolutely recommend this very professional service.

Brett Wilson/Glen Waverley

If I had of gone to another law firm that was cheaper I may have saved many thousands of dollars but as it turns out I may have lost a lot more than that upon settlement. Using a firm such as PCL lawyers I had the peace of mind that each issue as it arose was dealt with in a very matter of fact way and to the letter of the law.
