A trademark is any symbol, word or combination used to represent or identify a product. A trademark will help a consumer identifying one product from another one. Customers can identify the brand from its competitors and judge of its quality. Therefore, it is essential to register your trademark to get legal protection against counterfeit products and avoid any harm to your company.
