Great Trade Marks create emotion - Emotion drives the buying decision

Trade marks act as a badge of origin for your services and allow you to stand out from your competition.

A successful trade mark creates emotion because emotion drives the buying decision. This is why experienced brand owners strive to generate a strong emotional attachment to brands. A great trade mark has the power to change a desire into a burning need. The consumer has no choice but to buy. 

Trade mark registration is the best form of brand protection. Trade marks add value to your business and are assets business buyers look towards when acquiring businesses. Trade mark registrations increase the resale value of businesses.

Most importantly a trade mark registration allows you to easily enforce your rights against those that are trying to trade on the good reputaiton you have established in your brand. 

We file trade mark applications for a flat fee and do not charge to send clear reports.

Secure your trade mark and brand today.

Trade Mark Application Process

1. Application

The application filing phase of a trade mark application is one of the most critical phases. This is a short list of just some of the steps that must be done correctly to obtain a valid and enforceable trademar

  • For the purposes of trade mark registration, goods and services are classified into 45 classes. It is important that you file the trade mark in the correct class.
  • You must file the trademark in the correct name or it may be invalid.
  • You need to file for the correct goods and services. If you do not do so, you might not be able to enforce your trade mark rights.
2. Examination

Next, the application will be examined by IP Australia: this is the start of a conversation with IP Australia

  • if an examination report is issued by IP Australia, we can respond to the examination report explaining why the trade mark should be accepted for registration. This is why it is vital to know the trademark cases that have been handed down by the Courts.
  • We can respond to the examination reports by arguing a point, by providing evidence of use, consent to use letters and other legal techniques.
  • We can appear any any hearing on the matter and appeal decisions to the Federal Court.
3. Trade mark Opposition
