Overview

A trademark is a type of intellectual property that distinguishes and identifies a product or service of one business from those of another. In the United Kingdom, trademarks can be in the form of words, including personal names, slogans or phrases, smells, colours, designs, gestures and movements, the shape of goods or their packaging, sounds, brand memes, company names, domain names, and the combination of all the abovementioned. To be accepted in Great Britain, a trademark needs to be distinctive and sufficiently different from other registered trademarks in the same or similar field. On the contrary, the UK trademark law does not qualify for registration those trade marks that are offensive or against the law, are misleading or deceptive, customary in the field, too common and not distinctive as well as those that look too similar to state symbols.
