Why Should I Register a Trademark?
To register a trademark is an essential legal step for any business that trades, or intends to trade, using any distinctive name, logo or slogan in relation to its products and services.

The worldwide reach of the internet makes it even more important from a legal view point for any business, whether a small home start-up, a growing SME or an established, mature business, to register a trademark before investing any money or time in business or any new product or service extension.
Before your take any steps to register a trademark or use it in business, you should ensure that it is legally available and free to to use otherwise you could be infringing the trademark rights of a third party who may already have acquired rights in the same name.
