A trademark can be a word, name, label, color combination, or numbers that are used by businesses to differentiate their goods or services from other same goods or services made in different businesses. For Nestle and Cadbury both are chocolates but have different marks.
Trademarks in India are classified by the Controller General of Patents Designs and Trademarks, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. Trademarks are registered under the Trademark Act, 1999, and give the trademark owner the authority to sue for losses when infringements of trademarks happen. Registered trademarks are intellectual property for business, they are used to safeguard the company’s investment in the brand or symbol. Trademarks are necessary to get registrable if it is unique for the products and services you give. The maximum of the businesses usually looks for registration of the logo or name only. If you have come up with a unique idea or logo, then the only alternative to save it as your own unique identity is to patent it. A registered trademark is your business’s intellectual property or intangible asset. It serves as a protecting cover of the company’s investment made in the logo or brand.
