We most strongly recommend most new ventures should request a one off Trade Mark Search. There are
1,000,000 registered Marks in the UK and
2 million in Europe.
If you copy a Mark you will be sued and all turnover you have made is forfeited. If you are called
Mobile Hairdressers', there is not much need for
doing this search.
But if you were to trade as 'Harmany Blinds', would you know that the Trade Mark 'Harmany' is owned by
Everest Double Glazing Plc for the use of blinds
Once you have done a Trade Mark search you can be sure you will not be copying someone else's name or
brand. You can then even go ahead and register
the Mark throughout the UK and Europe so that it becomes your sole property and cannot be copied by
Registration of Marks is the ultimate protection of identity. Not doing a Trade Mark search can prove
costly and could destroy your business.
Please consider the risk of not doing a Trade mark search most carefully.
UK and European Trade Mark Search and report costs £96 (inc VAT) each, tick if required.
Please carry out the above Trade Mark Search and advise me of the situation before my limited company is registered.
