What is a trademark ?

A trademark is a sign (in most cases it is a word, a logo, or a combination of both) that identifies the goods and services as coming from your business. It helps customers to recognise your products or services in a crowded market and differentiate them from your competitors.

Once registered, only you can use your trademark or you can allow others to do so for the products and/or services covered by your registration for a specific area.

Na registratie mag alleen jij je merk gebruiken. Uiteraard kan je wel anderen toestemming geven om jouw merk te gebruiken voor producten en/of diensten die je voor een specifiek gebied hebt geregistreerd.
