There are several advantages to registering a trademark:
- Your trademark will be published in the official Benelux Trademarks Register. You will receive a certificate of registration.
- A registered mark enables the owner to take trade mark infringement proceedings.
- You can make use of the ® symbol. It tells the world that you value and will protect your intellectual property rights. As such, those who wish to avoid trouble will also avoid using your trademark.
- A registered trademark can be sold or licensed. It represents value and potential revenue to your business.
