Trademarks

What is a trademark?

Trademarks are often among the most important and valuable assets of a business. A distinctive mark allows a company to attract and retain its customers for the goods or services it sells. The trademark allows a merchant’s client to distinguish between the products and services offered, the main benefits of which are the identification and differentiation of the products.

In the specialized literature, the following functions of a mark have been retained:

  • the function of differentiating products or services and indicating their origin;
  • quality assurance function;
  • the monopoly function;
  • the advertising function;
  • the consumer protection function.

A trademark may be any word, including names of persons, drawings, letters, figures, figurative elements, sounds, three-dimensional shapes and in particular the shape of the product or packaging, colors or any combination thereof, which identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of a company of those of others.

A registered trademark offers the owner an exclusive right of use and the right to require third parties to abstain from any facts and acts that would infringe his right.
