How should you go about trademarking a name?

The first step when trademarking a name is to get some good legal advice to ensure that the name has not already been registered by a third party. As you can see, we provide a free trademark search service to make this easy for you. Just complete the search box and click.

If someone else has beaten you in trademarking a name that you are using for similar goods or services, you will be infringing their legal rights so it is important to get this first stage right.

It is important to understand the, often quite complex, legal issues involved in trademarking. A name, for instance, that has already been registered by a third party for the same goods or services will not normally be registrable. You could be stopped from using it and, even worse, you could have to pay legal damages to the trademark owner if you did.

Check out the legal reasons why you should trademark a name and the benefits of trademark registration.

Furthermore, failure by a business to take the important step of trademarking a name may result in the company having to go through an expensive rebranding exercise at a later stage. If you have to re-brand the real cost is not the actual cost of the re-brand but the fact that you automatically lose all your goodwill and reputation in the name you have forfeited.

If fact, if you do not get on with trademarking a name as soon as possible all you are effectively doing is building up goodwill in a name that someone else already owns and they will just take over your goodwill when you are compelled to stop using the name yourself.

One bit of advice, do not rely on company name registration or domain name protection. Neither of these gives you the legal rights in a name. Trademarking a name by way of formal trademark registration is the only way to ensure you have the legal right to stop others using it.
