During the whole subscription, we will be the owner of the trademark.
But we will transfer the trademark to our customers as soon as the subscription period is over and all amounts have been paid. The transfer is free of charge.
We are registering European community trademarks.
This has the advantage, that the name is registered in all the countries of the European Union, for ten years.
Before we file for a registration we check the status of the name and if a name is already registered, using the same classes, we will not proceed with the registration and we inform you about.
Nevertheless, the same names can be registered if the use different classes of goods and services.
The classes of goods and services define the ares of business for which the trademark will be registered.
There are 45 categories of classes for the definition of goods and services. The classes are defining the area of business for which you want to register your trademark(s).
The classification is a very important point of your registration, we highly advice that you look for help to register your Trademarks and define the right classes. Having defined the right classes raises the protection and the value of your trademark.
EUIPO advises to think big and they are right. You might have more goods and services than you think, go through all of your services and check for cross services or products. Also think where you want your business to be in the future, what kind of services and/or products would you like to offer in the next 3 to 5 years. Don’t forget your trademark will be registered for ten years.
Be realistic, is another advice EUIPO is proposing, in choosing where you want to go in the future, because if you chose classes for services or goods that you are no using will make you vulnerable.
