Given rapid growth and increased competition within the technology and digital innovation sector, adopting a trademark for your organization can feel like walking into a minefield.
Having the foundation of a carefully executed trademark strategy can elevate your brand, prevent misuse by others, and become a valuable marketing tool in navigating the increasingly crowded world of trademarks. Whether you are intending to keep it local or have a view to global expansion, developing an understanding for what a trademark is, best practices for choosing and protecting your trademark, and what you can do to reduce your risk of inadvertently stepping on others’ toes, are vital for any organization.
