You do not have a registered trademark or design, but someone copies the name and look of your product?

It is beneficial but not obligatory to obtain trademark or design protection.

Between competitors, competition law grants protection of distinctive signs and denominations introduced and used by companies conducting fair business practices. However, enforcement is more complicated than if the company had registered trademarks and/or designs.

It is also possible that someone else wants to get trademark protection for the packaging, logo, mark introduced to the market and already used by your company. Do you know that you can oppose the registration of a trademark based on previous use, or if you have failed to do so, you have the option to apply for invalidation against a trademark that has already been registered?

Our office can assist in the above cases by advising and initiating the necessary court or trademark proceedings.
