At the national/regional level, trademark protection can be obtained through registration, by filing an application for registration with the national/regional trademark office and paying the required fees. At the international level, you have two options: either you can file a trademark application with the trademark office of each country in which you are seeking protection, or you can use WIPO’s Madrid System.
Overview of Trademark Registration
A trademark is a distinctive or unique mark, logo, phrase, or emblem that identifies a product or service and distinguishes it from others.
