What is a Trademark?
A Trademark is a distinctive word or a combination of both which identifies certain goods and services of one producer offered for sale as being different from those of another. A trademark provides protection to the owner of the mark by ensuring the exclusive right to use it to identify goods or services, or to authorize another to use it in return for payment of royalty. A Trademark registration is valid for 10 years from date of application. It is renewable for periods of 10 years.
