You are familiar with this saying, I bet. But how does that work in your business? A customer identifies your business only through your brand name. A good name in the market is the key factor for your successful business. But, imagine if someone copies your brand name and earn profit and reputation of your business and if someone diminishes the value of your products in the name of your brand. Are you really concerned of your brand name? Have you done anything so far to protect your brand name?
The concept of logo and trademark associated with business started hundreds of years ago. But a proper system to protect this brand name was proposed not more than 150 years ago.
Following are the oldest registered trademarks!
Bass Brewery :
The Bass Brewery was founded as a brewery in 1777 by William Bass in Burton Upon Trent, England. The main brand was Bass Pale Ale which was once the highest selling beer in the UK.
The Bass red triangle logo is registered number one in UK, which was registered in 1875. This logo is reportedly in use since the 1600’s. And research shows that this is the oldest registered trademark which is still in use.
The first US trademark registration was granted in 1870 for an eagle logo used for paints by Averill Paints. This is considered to be the oldest registered trademark but its not in use now.
Trade Mark protection is not as widely used as it should be, and many businesses believe that Trademark protection is too expensive of an option for them. Trade Mark protection will provide you with a Country Wide registration of your Name, Design, Logo, Slogan, Packaging, or any other form of uniqueness that distinguishes your business or your products from those of your competitors.
