Should you register a
trademark or a
Simply put, trademarks signal the origin of products to consumers and design marks specify how products look. So the decision to register a trademark or a design mark is based on what you want to protect. If you want to protect your logo, you will use a type of trademark called a figurative mark, or if you want to protect your name, you will use a word mark, and if you want to combine both, you will use a figurative mark containing word elements.
If you have products on the other hand, you will use a design mark, because it protects: “’The appearance of the whole or a part of a product resulting from the features of, in particular, the lines, contours, colours, shape, texture and/or materials of the product itself and/or its ornamentation’.”
