Definition of a Trademark
A trademark is defined as anything that clearly marks out a person, firm, or legal entity as distinct. It differentiates its bearer from others through designs, graphics, words, symbols, colours, or any other means. Through trademark registration, the owner’s rights are protected; thus, the owner may then file legal action against unauthorized use of the trademark. Intellectual Property (IP) rights are rights related to trademarks.
A trademark serves as a legal distinction of a brand or product. In Indonesia, the Directorate General of Intellectual Property approves trademark applications and puts them in the country’s trademark database.
The primary objective which usually drives companies to register a trademark is to cause customers to consider the products and services of the company as being outstanding and unique. These customers are drawn to a brand and business which can easily be identified. Companies may use colours, pictures, slogans, shapes, and words to aid with this matter. Doing so will appeal to customers because customers will see that the company is truly distinctive. Any unusual words, signs, or other elements provide a powerful first impression and allow traders and customers to easily identify the company.
Of course, before an application can be made, one must own a company which is based in Indonesia. If you are interested in doing so, contact us at Paul Hype Page & Co. Our incorporation team will keep you informed about the best ways to go about setting up a company in Indonesia.
The inherent value of trademarks necessitate their registration. Registration of a trademark ought to be done as soon as possible. Registration of a trademark grants a company owner the rights to the trademark. Trademark rights allow owners to prevent those with unscrupulous and unethical motives from plagiarizing anything trademarked by the company or making profits from anything which has already been trademarked by the company.
