A Trademark is used to distinguish the goods and services of one person from the goods and services of another person. This means that each Trademark must be original and not like other Trademarks.
Once a company has dealt with the low costs of registering Trademarks, it may quietly conduct its business not only in Kazakhstan but also in other countries. Trademark registration may protect you against the following risks:
- appearance of competitors producing similar products under similar or identical names;
- parallel or ‘shadow’ import;
- the emergence of counterfeiting;
- registration of the names of the products to another person.
Indeed, if any of the above problems arise, a Trademark owner has legitimate grounds to fight violators through the use of civil, administrative and criminal measures.
We therefore suggest that you protect your Trademark as soon as possible. Please note that our firm can assist you with this.
