Trademark

A trademark is an important business asset. The registered trademark is proprietary.

A trademark is a designation expressing the inner world of your business that helps your customers identify your products and services and from the products and services of competitors.

The recognition of your trademark by your customers allows you to:

create and accumulate a business reputation for your business due to the distinctive identity of your products and services. The leading companies in the world have a trademark value measured in tens of billions of dollars;

increase the lifecycle of your company’s products/services, because your customers will want to buy the same product that they bought earlier and that they liked;

to ensure a loyal customer base when launching new products or services to the market.
Trademark protection

Legal protection of the trademark will prevent unscrupulous competitors from using your trademark illegally and, thereby, gratuitously using the reputation that you have accumulated in the market thanks to your efforts.

As the owner of a registered trademark, you have the exclusive right to use the trademark in relation to the goods and services for which it is registered.

If other persons use your registered trademark in Hong Kong (or a name confusingly similar) in relation to the same or similar goods or services without your consent, you may file a claim of infringement against them.

You can use the symbol ® to indicate that your trademark is registered.

If your trademark is not registered, you cannot use the symbol ® , but you can use the symbol ™. Using the symbol ® with an unregistered trademark is a criminal offense.
