I. Why use a trademark?
A trademark is to ensure that the trademark registrant has the exclusive right to identify goods or services, or to license others to use it for remuneration, so that the trademark registrant is protected.
The term of protection is ten years from the date of the trademark registration announcement, but after the expiration of the term, the trademark can be renewed by paying additional fees, and the number of times is unlimited;
Trademark protection is generally carried out by the local industry and commerce bureau with the cooperation of the investigation. If the negotiation fails, it is implemented by the court.
In most systems, the court has the power to stop trademark infringement. In a broad sense, trademarks contribute to positive and enterprising spirits around the world by rewarding trademark registrants for their recognition and economic benefits.
Trademark protection also deters unfair competitors, such as counterfeiters, from promoting inferior or different products or services with similar distinguishing marks. This system enables skilled and enterprising people to produce and sell goods and services under the fairest conditions possible, thereby facilitating the development of international trade.
