Trademarks Registration and Enforcement
Trademark is the first step in becoming an individual since it is the unique brand that identifies a business. It is important to choose a mark that is distinctive and easy to protect. Registering the trademark for that mark protects your company from companies copying the mark, or registering domain names in bad faith that are confusingly similar to your mark.
One type of trademark enforcement is Domain Name Recovery through arbitration procedures set forth by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
