This greatest issue many new or expanding businesses face is infringing other persons trade mark. Searching is important – really important.
We recommend conducting a trademark search before using a trademark. Even if you have a registered business name or domain name, you may not have the right to use the registered business name or domain name in Australia or overseas. Only a registered trademark provides you with the exclusive right to use a trademark in relation to particular goods and/or services, and in some cases, even with a registered trademark you may still infringe the rights of a third party.
