Trademark registration service
The trademark is the cornerstone of building a company’s reputation, distinguishing its products, and enhancing the relationship of trust with consumers. In its work, companies rely primarily on using a distinctive trademark to market and promote their products. It also attracts consumer attention and distinguishes products, which enables the company to gain customers’ trust in the market.
The company owner has the right to protect his trademark from any imitation or infringement of his trademark that constitutes confusion between his products and the products of other companies that may try to make profits by imitating his trademark unlawfully. Even worse, those products are not of the same quality as the products of the company owner, which leads to weakening Consumers’ confidence in the original product and thus causing loss to it.
Our office provides the service of registering the company’s trademark, protecting it from any imitation or similar mark that may cause confusion between them, and prosecuting anyone who uses the trademark registered in the name of the company, through specialized lawyers and consultants with promising experience in establishing companies and registering trademarks.
First, the brand concept:
The Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property defines trademarks as:
Creations in the form of names, words, signatures, letters, symbols, numbers, addresses, and seals, as well as designs, drawings, pictures, distinctive inscriptions, or a method of packaging pictorial elements; Or shapes, or a color, or a combination of colors, or a combination thereof, or any sign or combination of signs if they are used or intended to be used to distinguish the goods or services of an establishment.
Secondly, the importance of protecting the brand:
1. The trademark is considered the distinctive mark of the company’s products and creates a relationship of trust with consumers, which enables the company to gain customer loyalty and enhance the company’s good reputation.
2. Trademarks help distinguish your company’s products and prevent consumer confusion between the company’s products and other products of lower quality.
3. Registering your trademark helps protect your company’s products from imitation that may harm your company’s reputation.
4. Registering your trademark gives you an exclusive right to use it in your activity and gives you the ability to sue others if they use or exploit your registered trademark.
5. A registered trademark distinguishes your products from competing products in the market.
6. Registering your mark helps protect the consumer from counterfeiting by monitoring the market and controlling counterfeit marks by the competent authorities.
What are the trademark terms:
1. The trademark must be distinctive, innovative and never used before.
2. The trademark must not violate laws, regulations, and public morals, and be in accordance with the provisions of Islamic Sharia.
3. It must be written in Arabic, with the possibility of requesting a translation if it is in a language other than Arabic.
