What is the difference between registering a trademark and registering a business name?

Posted: 7 years ago in: Posted By admin

In the Republic of Ireland, businesses are required to register their trading or business names under the Business Names Registration Act. Business owners do not get any brand protection or name protection under this legislation. nor do they obtain any right to legally sue for trademark infringement.

In order to effectively and legally protect your business names, logos or brands they must be registered as trademarks.

The main difference between registering your business name and registering a trademark, is that trademark registration is similar to registration of title in property. It confers significant and powerful rights to owners of trademarks and allows trademark owners to defend their business name, logo or trademark against any infringements.
