trademark company nameWe are often asked what is the difference between registering a trademark, company name, brand or domain name ...and why bother at all?

The answer is very simple. Company name registration at Companies House and internet domain name registration confer virtually no legal rights at all. The only way to protect a company name is by trade mark registration.

In fact, under the most recent regulations at Companies House, a trademark owner can force you to change the name of your company if it is the same as a trademark that is protected by trademark registration at the UKIPO.

The only secure way to protect your business or company name is to register it as a trademark. Company names are not protected by incorporation as a limited company or by registration of an Internet domain name. The UK Company Names Adjudication Rules and the arbitration policies of the various domain name registration bodies such as ICANN and Nominet, recognise that a name protected by trademark registration nearly always takes precedence over company and domain name registrations.

Search A Company Name

It is therefore vital to recognise the importance of protecting a trademark, company name or brand name by prompt trademark registration before any infringement takes place – after all, prevention is always better than cure. Company names that are not protected as registered trademarks are always open to legal attack by competitors, so make sure you take steps to register your company name as a registered trade mark without delay.
