This service allows you to deposit your trademark registration application at the Chamber of Commerce you belong.
All trademarks that are graphically suitable for distinguishing the products or services of an enterprise from those of others may constitute trademarks. You can use words, drawings, letters, digits, sounds, shapes of the product or its packaging, combinations or color tones.
A sign can be registered as a trademark if it is provided with:
-novelty, as it can not be confused with the previous distinctive signs of others (trademarks, domain names, trade names)
-distinctive capacity, as it is capable of distinguishing a product or service from that of others
-lawfulness, insofar as it is not contrary to the law, public order and morality, and above all, not suitable for misleading consumers on the geographical origin, on the characteristics and the quality of the relative products and services.
Before submitting an application for registration of a trade mark, it is appropriate to observe some general rules:
-Make sure the mark complies with the legal requirements
-Verify that the brand has no negative connotations not only in Italy, but also in other countries, especially if potential export markets
-Check that the corresponding domain name (or Internet address) is still free
-Ensure that the brand is easy to read, write, memorize and easy to advertise on all types of media
