The following can be protected as a trademark: words, images, labels, logos, packaging, three-dimensional shapes, colours and colour combinations as well as signature tunes. Trademark rights are acquired by application and registration at national, European or international trademark offices. Registered trademarks can be transferred, licensed and exploited.
Company rights arise from the use of a designation as the name of a company in business transactions. When choosing the name, you must ensure that it cannot be confused with an existing name of another company. Otherwise there is a risk of injunctive relief and claims for damages.
