Trademark

 

When starting a new business there will be a number of sometimes complex, and sometimes simple steps, checks, and processes to complete. You need to make sure you’re in full compliance with local laws and regulations, and you also need to ensure that you have the operational structure in place to support your business. 

One of the most important things, which is also something that foreign owned businesses may overlook, is trademark registration in UAE. It is important that new businesses begin the process as soon as possible, because a trademark is often a key brand identifier that needs to be protected for the benefit of your business.

Registration throughout the Emirates

Your intellectual property should never be compromised, and never be left to chance. While your trademark may be well established and legally protected in your home market, if you haven’t registered it, then you may be putting your business at risk. 

Once you have registered your trademark, you will be protecting your intellectual property throughout the United Arab Emirates. Not being limited to Dubai, the registration will be valid in emirates including Abu Dhabi, Fujairah, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, and Ras Al Khaimah.

How Crowe Mak will Help with Trademark Registration Dubai

A trademark that is completely unique in the founding country, may have conflicts in a new, foreign market. We will ensure that there are no conflicts, and if there are, we can recommend the action that needs to be taken to make changes to the submission. We will help you to ensure that all documentation and requirements are in place to make a successful submission to the UAE Trademarks Office, ensuring that the process is both convenient and timely.

Trademark registration can sometimes take an extended period of time to process, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t begin using your intended trademark. Objections will be made before the actual registration process begins. If there are no objections, then the registration will be processed and become official within two years of the original submission. 

We will work with you through every step of the process, giving you peace of mind in knowing that your trademark, easily the most recognisable image of your business, will be protected for you to conduct business in one of the world’s most exciting business hubs.

 

A trademark is any word; name, symbol or device used, or intended to be used, in interstate commerce to distinguish the products and services of one company or individual from those of another. In addition to names and logos, trademarks can include any device that distinguishes the source of goods or services. This can include color (e.g., pink for insulation) or even sounds (e.g., NBC's chimes).

Intellectual property can be defined as the content of the human intellect deemed to be unique and original and to have marketplace value—and thus to warrant protection under the law. Intellectual property includes but is not limited to ideas; inventions; literary works; chemical, business, or computer processes; and company or product names and logos. Intellectual property protections fall into four categories: copyright (for literary works, art, and music), trademarks (for company and product names and logos), patents (for inventions and processes), and trade secrets (for recipes, code, and processes).

 
Copyright 


Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United Arab Emirates to the authors of “original works of authorship,” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works. This protection is available to both published and unpublished works. Section 106 of the 1976 Copyright Act generally gives the owner of copyright the exclusive right to do and to authorize others to do the following:

• To reproduce the work in copies; 
• To prepare derivative works based upon the work; 
• To distribute copies of the work to the public by sale or other transfer of ownership, or by rental, lease, or lending; 
• To perform the work publicly, in the case of literary, musical, dramatic, and choreographic works, pantomimes, and motion pictures and   other audio-visual works; 
• To display the copyrighted work publicly, in the case of literary, musical, dramatic, and choreographic works, pantomimes, and pictorial,   graphic, or sculptural works, including the individual images of a motion picture or other audiovisual work; and
• In the case of sound recordings, to perform the work publicly by means of a digital audio transmission.

Patents

A patent is a right granted to an inventor for an invention, which in most cases is a product or a process of a new way of creating something or providing a new solution to a certain technical problem. 
Once granted, a patent confers protection upon the owner thereof. The period of protection ranges between 15 to 20 years. The protection period is not renewable except in rare and particular cases. 
In order for an invention to be patentable, it must be new, capable of solving an existing technical problem and liable to practical application in industry.
