Trademarks are symbols, names, slogans or signs that are uniquely and legally associated with a business or an individual. They are what differentiates Company A from Company B even if they belong to the same industry for brand power, positioning and competitive advantage.



Patents are used in protecting inventions of a new product or process that have never been done before. This is done to give exclusive profit right to the inventor for a period. The inventor may then license the rights to others for economic returns.



Designs or industrial designs are the patterns, colours, features, lines, aesthetics that differentiates products of a business from others. Registering your designs protects you from a copy that might harm your revenue potential.
