is a trade mark?
A trade mark is a sign which can distinguish your goods
and services from those of your competitors. It can be
for example words, logos or a combination of both. You
can use your trade mark as a marketing tool so that customers
can recognize your products or services.
Trademarks and service marks are words, names, symbols,
or devices used by manufacturers of goods and providers
of services to identify their goods and services, and
to distinguish their goods and services from goods manufactured
and sold by others. A trade mark must be distinctive for
the goods and services provided. In other words it can
be recognized as a sign that differentiates your goods
or service as different from someone else's.
What is a patent?
protect the features and processes that make things
work. This lets inventors profit from their inventions.
Benefits of patent protection
A patent gives you the right to stop others from copying,
manufacturing, selling, and importing your invention
without your permission. The existence of your patent
may be enough on its own to stop others from trying
to exploit your invention. If it does not, it gives
you the right to take legal action to stop them exploiting
your invention and to claim damages. The patent also
allows you to:
sell the invention and all
the intellectual property (IP) rights
license the invention to
someone else but retain all the IP rights
Discuss the invention with
others in order to set up a business based around
The public also benefit from your patent because we
publish it after 18 months. Others can then gain advance
knowledge of technological developments which they will
eventually be able to use freely once the patent ceases.
What is a design?
is all about the way an object looks: its shape, its
visual appeal...it's all in the design.
