What Is Trademark?
WHY TRADEMARK REGISTRATION IS IMPORTANT IN INDIA
Unique Identification: Products and services provided by the business are uniquely recognized by consumers and audiences. This helped to build a market reputation and thus, became the face of the business unit. This ensures sole ownership of a particular symbol, logo, name, such that it is not misused.
Exclusive right: The right to use it exclusively in relation to the goods and services offered by the business entity.
Legal protection: Once a trademark is registered, the owner can sue for infringement of the existing trademark. Thus, it provides some legal protection in the following situations:
Before a merchant makes his trademark
In this process the trademark can be found through a database or trademark registry as a possibility of infringement.
In cases when a trader tries to register an existing brand name in the trademark registry, it will be objectionable at the Trademark Office.
In case of infringement, is able to obtain the right to claim under certain conditions.
Building trust or goodwill: Serving quality products and services under a registered trademark creates an image of the business entity in the market. It also portrays that the business cares about brand building and that it passes on positive values about the brand to customers or the public.
Global Permit: Trademark registration in India helps domestic traders get in touch with the global market through the international trademark system. It is important to note that NRIs and foreigners are also eligible to register trademarks in India. On the other hand, Indians can register their trademark globally.
Protection against infringement claims: Once a trademark is registered, the person can be sure of infringement claims. This means that if a trademark has been entered, one may require a reasonable legal evidence to defend against the trademark.
Market Value: A trademark standardizes the product and services provided by the business entity in the market. It creates value for the brand such that it is easier for the customer or potential customer to market the company or brand.
Hypothecation or protection: A registered trademark may be converted for the purpose of securitization for the purpose of securing debts. Here it is mortgaged in a similar way as an immovable property is made bonded.
Intangible Property: In the legal sense, a registered trademark is often referred to as an identifiable intangible asset. It connects to the reputation or goodwill of the product.
Right to use the symbol R: Once registered, one can use the symbol for the goods and services listed in the registration.

Benefits Of Trademark Registration
What can be registered as a trademark?
What is the difference between TM, SM, ®, © ?
You recognize a registered trademark by a symbol of a circle-R followed by a trademark name or graphic image. Various typographic symbols show copyrights and patents. The presence or absence of a symbol does not change the validity of the registration, but whenever you mention your intellectual property in print, it is a best practice to use Circle-R or Circle-C for copyright. These symbols give the legal basis for claiming damages in trademark litigation. The following is a list of some specific signs that you can use on a web page, in written content, or even in a marketing letter.
TM: The TM sign shows the brand name for unregistered trademark classified as a product (classes 1 to 34). Swami uses this symbol to mark what they believe is their brand mark.
The SM: SM symbol is similar to the TM symbol except that it bears a service mark (classes 35 to 45).
®: ®: Use the ® symbol after entering the trademark or service mark. This indicates that the country authority has approved the registration.
©: Use the © symbol to mark a copyright. The term is a replacement sign to follow with the year of copyright, publication and owner’s name. Use whether the work has received copyright registration or not.
Patent Pending: The phrase patent pending shows that you have filed a patent application but cannot guarantee approval of the application.
