In most cases, you do not need a business license to register a trademark. Trademark registration is separate from obtaining a business license, as it primarily focuses on protecting your brand identity and distinguishing your goods or services from others in the marketplace.

The requirements for trademark registration typically involve providing information about the applicant, such as their name, address, and contact details. This information is used to establish the ownership of the trademark rights and to communicate with the trademark owner regarding the application.
