4 Key things to keep in mind when protecting a trademark
- 1. Trademarks should be distinctive, meaning they should be easy to differentiate from other trademarks in the market, in relation to the product being identified.
- 2. It is important to have a correct classification of the products or services being offered
- 3. It is fundamental to know which are the impediments established by law on what cannot be registered as a trademark
- 4. It is highly important to proceed with a check in order to know whether the trademark has already been registered or there are similar trademarks filed/registered
