If you’d like to trade in countries overseas, Quick Off The Mark® can help you check whether your mark may infringe on any unregistered or registered trademarks in that country.
Taking this step before you start trading will prevent any rebranding or name changes due to trademark violation on your behalf.
Quick Off The Mark® can also assist in the prosecution of international trademark applications and finalising international trademark registrations for you to ensure your brand is protected when used outside of Australia.
6 Quick Off The Mark® can help you trademark your business name
If you own an Australian business, which trades under a name other than your own, you’ve got a legal obligation to register your business name.
But the act of registering a business name doesn’t give you any ownership rights over it.
Business names are registered in Australia to gather information about the people behind each business, including their names and addresses.
Quick Off The Mark® helps small businesses and start-ups ensure ownership of their business names by taking steps to register those names as trademarks.
When you register a trademark for your small business or start-up in Australia, you gain legal rights in relation to your business and brand. It’s important to know these rights may be limited by the details in your trademark application.
