Trademarks:
Trademarks are key assets for most businesses. They help your customers distinguish your products and services from those of others in the marketplace, as well as associate them with your company and its reputation. Trademarks include words, designs, and/or a combination of both, and distinctive shapes or wrappings that distinguish your products and services. Your business name may also be registrable as a trademark if it is used to distinguish your products and services from those of others. Registering your trademarks is an essential step as it allows you to better protect your brand against replication or exploitation.

Your reputation is everything, with so much invested in your brand. Your trademarks are an important aspect of who you are. They are how your customers identify you, and they set you apart from the competition. Whether your trademarks consist of your company’s name, the name of a product line, a logo and/or a catchy slogan, they all generate customer goodwill and therefore have value, which is why you need to protect them. At Ontario Trademark Lawyers, we can advise you on all aspects of your trademark matters, from registration to licensing to enforcement.
