Before going to deeper and strenuous part of the present article, it is better to define first, what is trademark law. The Trademark Law is a major constituent of the Intellectual Property Law, and deals exclusively with the registration of original and unique trademarks proposed by companies and institutions of diverse sectors of economy. This trademark law, besides approving and registering original trademarks, also gives some exclusive rights to the trademark owners for proper utilization of and protection to the registered trademarks, from trademark infringement etc.
It is the trademark which offers publicity, reputation, and profitability to any product or service of a company, in the world of business, regional, national, or global. This trademark is therefore, very own and personal property of a company, and must not be misappropriated or infringed upon by others in any way ever. In the event of any such cases, the trademark owner can file a rigorous trademark infringement lawsuit against the infringer. These are the facts the trademark law outlines.
The trademark law offers guidelines about trademark selection, trademark registration, trademark protection, and the trademark litigation, to the trademark owner. Every country has a well-devised trademark law for proper trademark registration and protection, within its jurisdictions. International trademark legislations like the Paris Convention, European Community Trademark (CTM), Madrid Protocol, TRIPS Agreement, etc., are the means for registering and regulating trademarks for peaceful and fair international and worldwide businesses.
The trademark law outlines that must be original and unique, in any of the forms of a name, number, design, symbol, phrase, image, graphic, logo, shape, etc., or a combination of any of these. This trademark should be unambiguously distinct from other trademarks in form, sight, and sound (pronunciation), in order to annul the likelihood of confusion to the customers. In case of trademark infringement, the owner of the registered trademark may file a rigorous and drastic trademark infringement lawsuit against the infringer, together with a demand for due compensation.
