INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW
FOCUS ON TRADEMARK PROTECTION
Intellectual property law represents a dynamically evolving legal domain encompassing several sub-fields, primarily classified into two principal categories:
- Copyright, as well as its related rights.
- Industrial property law.
It is beyond dispute that the diligent protection of intellectual property constitutes a foundational prerequisite for achieving success in business endeavors. Particularly for companies engaged in the sale of goods, establishing and registering a trademark is of paramount significance as it imparts distinctiveness.
A trademark is a legally safeguarded symbol utilized in commercial activities in order to distinguish goods and/or services from those of identical or similar nature. Importantly, trademark protection is delimited by national boundaries, thereby rendering it territorial in nature.
