How do I enforce my intellectual property rights ?
Getting your mark registered 1st is important. Having a registered mark in a sovereign nation before anyone else is a great advantage.
Several Key Issues
- Be the first to register. Obtain a certificate of trademark registration from a nation that is part of WIPO. WIPO Welcomed Solomon Islands as 192nd Member State April 9, 2019
- Be the first to use your TM and ® Symbol
- Be the first to have a National or Sovereign Trademark.
- Make sure your trademark is online and being commercially used before others.
