Trademark Protection

Trademark registration is at the heart of brand protection, as well as protecting your business name and logo. Registering your trademark facilitates the trademark owner’s ability to sue for unauthorized use of a trademark or a mark that is similar. The registration certificate is a strong legal tool. The mere fact that trademark is registered gives rise to a legal presumption that makes it easier to file a lawsuit, as well as petitions for interim relief against the party violating your trademark rights, including petitions for temporary injunction to stop the infringing activities. The scope of the legal protection afforded to a trademark and the effectiveness of the protection are greatly dependent on how the trademark was registered in the first place: Under what classification was it registered which goods or services were mentioned in the application, in what configuration was it registered, and with what restrictions. Regardless, prior to registering a trademark or before embarking on activities under a particular name, we recommend seeking advice from a law firm that specializes in intellectual property. A preliminary search of registered trademarks in Israel can be done in the trademark database, that is open to the public: http://www.trademarks.justice.gov.il/
