Having a good name in business can be the difference between success and failure. The name of your business is one of your most valuable assets as without it, you’re not identifiable from the crowd.
A common assumption by most business owners in the UK is that a name registered with Companies House and a domain name registration will be enough to prevent others from copying your name. Unfortunately neither of these are enough to guarantee you with the exclusive legal right to your name. A registered trade mark is the best way to secure the legal exclusivity to your name.
Here’s just a small example of the types of trade mark you may already have in your business:
One of the greatest risks for many businesses without a trade mark is the risk of a competitor copying your name or registering your name as a trade mark before you.
Many smaller businesses believe they don’t need trade mark protection because it’s for bigger brands where there is something tangible to protect. It’s easy to forget that protecting the brand is one of the main reasons those companies got to where they are.
A trade mark will help your business protect the investment you make in its branding by turning it into a protectable asset.
