I would like to understand better this registration thing…
Let’s say you were building a house or selling a car. In case you don’t have the deed of ownership or the vehicle is not registered at the DMV, the ownership of your asset might be compromised. The same applies to trademarks. Trademark registration ensures you are the owner of a trademark, giving you more freedom to operate in the market — particularly with regard to competitors.
