Business identity theft: avoid becoming a victim of trademark squatting
The digital marketplace offers many advantages for businesses: it can be a useful tool for promoting your products or services and is a great way to connect with prospective customers and leverage the image of your business. However, it’s also a prime platform for copycats and scammers to take advantage of your brand. In the e-commerce context, a brand communicates the product range, quality, price, trust and customer service, allowing you to distinguish from competitors, both domestic and foreign. As a result, a brand can be viewed as one of the most important assets, deserving an adequate level of protection in the form of trademark registration.
