How To Register a Company Name

trademark registration how to register a comapny nameIt is essential for any start-up company to consider how to register a company name.

Actually, the real question is not how to register a company name but how to protect a company name so that no-one else can use it for the same goods or services.

This exclusive right use a company name in business can only be obtained by registering a trademark.

Even if you register a company name at Companies House this will give you virtually no legal protection in terms of stopping others using your name. Likewise, you cannot protect a company name simply by domain name registration. The only way this can be done is by trademark registration.

It is a very common mistake (and often a very costly one!) to think that if you register a company name at Companies House you get the exclusive right to use the name in business. This is quite wrong. You cannot protect company names by registering them at Companies House or by domain name registration.

Trademark registration is the only way to protect a company name or logo and prevent others taking advantage of the goodwill and value of your business. A registered trade mark will give you the exclusive right to use your company name, business name and logo in the course of trade and to stop others using them.

So the answer to the question how to register a company name is…..register it as a trade mark.
