Why Get a Trademark Registration?

A trademark refers to a unique identity like a logo, symbol, photograph, catch-phrase, brand name, product name, jingle, or anything else that differentiates the products and services offered by a business from the rest of the similar products and services. There are several benefits of having a trademark registration in India, some of which we will discuss below.

The primary benefit of having a trademark registered is that it gives you exclusive rights to that particular trademark and can use it for all the commodities falling under the class(es) applied. Since you would be having the sole ownership of the trademark you can stop any illegitimate use of the trademark for products under the same class, and sue any unauthorized use of the trademark. This process is also referred to as brand registration in India and the benefits are the same.

A trademark indicates the established quality of your goods and services which generates goodwill and reliability among the consumers in the market. This results in permanent customers who will be loyal to your brand and prefer your commodities over similar products available in the market. In short your brand stays protected and can enjoy long term visibility without any legal issues.

It also becomes easier for customers to find and notice your products when you have a trademark registration. It differentiates the products you offer from the rest of the products provided by your competitors and serves as an effective commercial instrument. The logo can communicate the vision or essence of your business to your customers and target audience.

A trademark can derive acknowledgement of your business from the market. Consumers tend to attach the quality of a product to a brand name. Thus perception is created in the market which is helpful in alluring new customers who will be able to differentiate the quality of a product by brand identity.

A registered trademark also serves as an intangible asset to the organisation in the form of intellectual property which can be sold, franchised, assigned, or contracted. Once your trademark is registered you can also use the ® symbol next to your logo which indicates the exclusivity of the rights to the trademark.
