What is a Trademark Registration?
A Trademark Registration is a title giving the exclusive right to use a sign for identifying a product or a service from a certain company within the markets. It is used to difference it from other identical products or services from other companies within the commercial traffic. A Trademark could be any word or a combination of words, images, figures, symbols, draws, graphics, letters, numbers, three-dimensional shapes (wrappers, containers, product's shape or its representation) as well as the talking signs.
Collective trademarks are those that personalize products or services belonging to some association of producers, manufacturers or trader, and trademark of guaranty are those that certify the common features of products and services manufactured or distributed by the authorized people and controlled by the trademark's principal.
The Trademark Registration is protected for 10 years from the filing date and it can be renewed indefinitely by identical periods.
