No, you do not need to have a registered trademark before you start selling your goods or services. Trademark registration is not a prerequisite for engaging in business activities. You can use your desired mark in commerce and begin selling your products or services without a registered trademark.

However, it is advisable to consider registering your trademark to obtain stronger legal protection and exclusive rights in the long run.
