UK and Commonwealth Trademarks

Commonwealth Image

The Commonwealth of Nations might seem to many as a historical rather than current artefact, especially to those outside it, and only mentioned in international news when one of the UK’s former colonies receive the visit of a member of the Royal Family, and yet it has implications for its members in many aspects of modern life – including the one that concerns us, trademark protection.

Trademarks after BREXIT – protecting your trademark in the United Kingdom

Trademarks after BREXIT image

BREXIT has left the world and especially Europe in an uncomfortable stand-by. While the months pass, the number of questions and theories of how, what, and when only increase. Deal, no deal, hard BREXIT or soft BREXIT, even the possibility of a second referendum now seems to be an option, although remote. However, when it comes to trademarks and industrial designs in a post BREXIT era, how they would be handled in the worst-case scenario of a no deal hard BREXIT now seems to be clear.

Trademarks and Amazon’s Brand Registry

Amazon's Brand

Amazon is a monster, but in the good sense of the word… This one-stop shop for everything you may need - and in most cases not - is the perfect meeting place for responsible consumers, shopaholics and sellers.

In this virtual marketplace that allows for the average Joe to compete face to face with big business, how can a seller, either small or large, get an edge over their cutthroat competitors? Well, the solution is simple… as always, trademarks (brands).

Trademarks Areas of Special Sovereignty

Trademarks Areas

As a general rule, registered trademarks will only be recognized in the country where they are registered. However, many countries have territories (territorial dependencies) where a country’s law is completely recognized, only partially recognized, or may even have complete autonomy when it comes to intellectual property or trademark matters.
