As an Intellectual Property Firm, our job is to protect your ideas and allow them to deploy their full potential. The registration of your brand and logo will not only protect them but merely turn them in a valuable asset. As owner of Intellectual Property rights, you will have exclusive nationwide ownership of the trademark. You will ultimately be able to sell, franchise or license your IP rights for profit.
       
  We can assist you throughout Asia. As a client, you have one point of contact based in Singapore to deal with all your Asian IP matters. The platform developed by IPHub Asia is designed to maximize time effectiveness and ensure a smooth communication process.
         
Benefits of registering trademarks
The trademark’s owner is entitled to a presumption of ownership and exclusive use of the mark for the goods or services of interest in a specific jurisdiction;
Registration will make it much easier to take legal actions to prevent third parties from using a similar or identical trademark;
Many companies carry out clearance searches of relevant trademark registers before adopting a new trademark. A registered trademark will appear  in  the
 
trademark search reports ordered by others and will likely discourage them from proceeding with the registration of an identical or similar trademark;
Trademarks are your property and they can be sold or licensed to somebody else whilst you retain the IP rights;
The mark’s owner is granted the right to put the logo ® after the mark.
 
 
 
   


A very wide range of designs can be protected under various national design regulations. Potentially protectable designs include two dimensional designs such as fabric patterns, or three dimensional designs like watches or mobile phones.

In fact, registered designs may be a useful supplement or alternative to trademark protection where trademark protection is difficult to obtain or cannot be secured without prior extensive use.

As for trademarks, designs can be assigned, mortgaged or licensed.
 
         
Trademarks can be the most important asset of a company as they are its main goodwill. When properly used and maintained, they can last forever. However, one has to be aware that some maintenance is involved in keeping a trademark valid.

Generally, trademarks have to be renewed every ten years. It is also critical to keep the marks’ details (such as the applicant’s name and address) updated at all times and to record assignments or licenses of the marks on a timely manner.
Furthermore, if a registered trademark has not been used consecutively for a certain period of time (three or five years, depending on the jurisdiction), there is a risk that the trademark might be removed from the Register. Indeed, any interested party could apply to have an inactive registered trademark removed by showing proof of non-use.

Dorothée
I was born in the French-speaking part of Switzerland and hold a Masters’ Degree in Law from the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) with specialization in Intellectual Property. In 2003, I moved to South-East Asia where I joined one of the leading Singapore-based IP firms. I was in charge of the trademark and design department and I had the opportunity to gain extensive experience in Intellectual Property in all the Asian countries.
I set up IPHub Asia in 2008 and I am currently the firm Managing Director. Feedback, questions or just say “Hi” atdorothee@iphub.asia.
