Trademarks

The legal definition of a trademark is very broad: trademarks are all signs which distinguish a company's goods (products) or services. This broad definition with the reference to all signs means that more distinguishing signs can be protected as trademarks than you perhaps may think. You can apply to register a trademark by filing the brand name and/or logo online. You can also register a trade name or company name as a trademark. Before you start using your trademark and before you arrange for its protection it is, of course, a good idea to investigate which older trademarks already exist.

Apply for a trademark directly online

You can apply to register and protect a trademark by filing the brand name and/or logo online. You can also register a trade name or company name as a trademark.  Before you start using your trademark or tradename and before you arrange for its protection it is, of course, a good idea to investigate which older trademarks already exist.

The law dictates that the BOIP is obliged to refuse registration of an application (filing) in a number of cases. If a trademark is refused, it will not be registered. This means that your trademark will not be protected. Also note that you will not be refunded for the costs paid.
