In general terms, a trademark is a logo or a brand that differentiates your goods and services from that of your competitors. It is a unique expression, which protects your business’s essentials by restricting other people from using it for gaining purposes. For example, the logo of ADIDAS and its tagline IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING is a registered trademark. Trademark owners have an exclusive right under the Trademark Act of India. The owner can sue and claim to recover damages for the infringements of the trademark.
