Trademarks, Labels

Your enterprise has at least one trademark – the name. A number of enterprises use various trademarks – slogans, logos, domain words, program names (if an enterprise is involved in several different business activities), product names and labels (for manufacturers), outdoor signs etc.
We perceive trademarks as something that differentiates your enterprise from other enterprises – your enterprise quality labels.
Developing your enterprise you at the same time develop your trademark. A trademark becomes more known and, therefore, is more valuable. Despite presence of foreign trademarks (“Colgate”, “Mercedes”, “Coca-Cola”, “IBM”), there are also many local enterprises in Latvia that can be proud of their trademarks.
One can make a trademark his/her property by registering it in compliance with the procedure stipulated by the law. Registration is in force on the territory specified at the registration.
In order to warn about one’s property rights for a specific mark, the owner of the registered trademark can put a cautionary label ® on its mark.
The one of our bureau’s main working fields is to help our clients to protect their trademarks properly and to fight against trademark violators.
