What is the Trademark?


A trademark is generally a word, phrase, symbol, or design, or a combination of these elements,
that identifies and distinguishes the source of one party’s goods from those of others. A service
mark is the same as a trademark except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service
rather than goods. The terms “trademark” or “mark” are commonly used to refer to both
trademarks and service marks. Although federal registration of a mark is not mandatory, it has
several advantages, including notice to the public of the registrant’s claim of ownership of the
mark, a legal presumption of ownership nationwide, and the exclusive right to use the mark on or
in connection with the goods and/or services listed in the registration.


Why register a trademark?


Although it is not mandatory to register a trademark in order to use it, a trade mark registration
adds great value to a business. The goodwill and reputation of a business can be reduced or
tarnished if others try to misrepresent their own goods and services as yours by adopting a brand
which is similar or identical to your business. Some of the key benefits of registering a trademark
include:
• The trade mark owner has the right to prevent others from using a similar or identical
mark without his permission once the trade mark is registered.
• Generates a rightful perception among public about the authentic ownership and quality
of the product.
• Prevents others to copy and use the trademark as the owner of a registered trademark can
sue and collect damages from organizations that infringe upon the trademark.
• A trademark registration decreases the likelihood of another party claiming that your
trademark infringes upon their trademark.
• Gives owner the right to use ® symbol.
• It provides due warning to interested parties who wish to file a similar or identical trade
mark since the Singapore trademark office will refuse to register any confusingly similar
marks. In addition, your mark will appear on the local Trade Marks Register when
businesses contemplate adopting a mark that is similar to yours.
