For a very simple reason: if you don't, someone else might do it instead, thereby keeping the monopoly of your trademark and stopping you from using, producing, or marketing it. As such, registering your trademark will reinforce the legal protection of your intellectual property and prevent others from using it without your prior consent. After registration, you can use the ® symbol, showing others that your mark has been officially registered.
There is no registration that can protect your trademark on a global level. As such, it is important to register your trademark in the countries which you have targeted for expansion to ensure maximum protection in your points of export or commercial interest.
There is, in fact, some care that should be taken after your trademark has been registered:
Trademark Watch: Inventa can ensure a constant monitoring of the market, always warning you as soon as a trademark that is identical or similar to yours is detected and providing you with the best strategies for the prevention and suppression of any infringements.
Trademark Protection: the occurrence of trademark infringement requires complex mechanisms of legal intervention. Inventa’s team of experts can take the lead on that matter, always giving you advice on the best strategies for action and assessing the impact of any legal conflicts upon your trademark.
