One of the most important aspects of IP in commerce is the ‘Trademark’.
Trademarks, like commercial names, graphics, designations etc., comprise a kind of Intellectual Property the legal protection of which is vital in Commerce.
From a business standpoint, registering a trademark is an extremely important branding step to take, as trademarks are distinctly linked to companies.
