Trademark (known in business circles as a „brand” or „brand name”) is a sign used to identify and distinguish the goods of one manufacturer or seller from those of another and can be presented in the State Register of Marks in such a way that it is possible to clearly and accurately determine the subject of the protection granted with the registration. Such signs may be words, including names of persons; letters; numerals; drawings; figures; the shape of goods or of their packaging; combination of colors; sound signals or any combination of such signs.
According to the way of representation the marks are three-dimensional, sound marks, combinative, word, figurative. According to their use, marks are trademarks, service marks, collective marks and certification marks. Depending on its territorial validity the mark may be registered as a national trademark, regional (European Union trademark or Community trademark) and international trademark.
