A registered trade mark gives you the exclusive legal right to use, licence and sell your intellectual asset in Australia. 

Protecting your trade mark will protect the identity of your goods and services, and prevent others from imitating your brand. 

A registered trade mark can provide legal protection and enable you to stop others trading with it.

Company names, business names and domain names do not provide you with this legal protection.

 Branding Tips and Tricks
Your branding is your “badge of origin”.  It should distinguish your brand from other traders.
What if my trading name is too descriptive to trade mark?
It will be rejected!  Ah, but not all is lost.  There are simple tricks you can use to overcome this issue. 
Include your catchphrase
For example:
  • Mike’s Barber Shop; or
  • Sue’s Taxation Services
become:
  • Mike’s Barber Shop
A good cut’s a quick cut
 
  • Sue’s Taxation Services
A good cut’s a tax cut
 
Turn it into a logo - even more distinctive
