An essential guide to understanding how trade marks can help your business succeed.
Trade marks distinguish the goods or services of one business from another and can take many forms, for example; words slogans, logos, shapes, colours and sounds.
In this Mini-Masterclass we will explain the key facts about trade marks and how to use our free web databases to see if this form of protection is available and suitable for your business idea. It is ideal for you if you are an entrepreneur, inventor, innovators or pre-start business with an idea or product you are looking to protect with a trade mark. You will have the opportunity to try out the databases with help from our experts and to ask questions.
