It Shows the Importance of Registering your Trademarks
The sheer number of registered marks is a clear sign to businesses of the importance to protect their goods and services through the use of trade marks.
With the increase of platforms on which to sell goods and services, it is inevtiable that the number of brands coming into existence will continue to increase at a faster pace than before. Entry to market is now much lower as anybody with a computer and an internet connection has the potential to sell to a global marketplace at their fingertips.
On the flip side, the number of infringements will also increase and it is more important than ever that brands ensure they have protected their IP properly and in the right territories so that they can prevent infrignement and maintain their competitive advantage, which in turn will form the base an investment in the IP as a valuable asset itself.
Whether you are starting out or an established brand investing in product lines that are gaining traction, it is crucial to register your trademarks so that you have recourse against future would-be infringers and can increase the value of your IP goodwill and assets.
