Worldwide globalization of all spheres of life causes the actualization of protection of intellectual property rights. Day to day any customers meet with logo, brands, names and simultaneously realize that here is a hallmark of some brand.
According to Ukrainian civil law, a trademark is an object of copyright and intellectual property as well. In general trademark is distinctive feature of your brand, namely unique trait which attract custumers attention to your good or service and signals that your brand is special and unlike any other.
Set of trademark`s distinctive features determines how much your brand is unique. Accordingly, the procedure of it`s creation demands selection of special combinations of colors, cryptographic notations and signs, which in their symbiosis are the components of the trademark.
The above actions are sufficient for the registration of the trademark in Ukraine, but at the same time it is not enough to spread its action outside the country. In the second case, registration provides for a greater number of stages, which needs a double registration procedure, that is, both on the territory of Ukraine and in another jurisdiction.
To obtain intellectual property rights for a trademark in another jurisdiction, you can either register a trademark in the country of interest in accordance with the national registration procedure, or use the registration under the Madrid registration procedure. It is worth noting that even for registration under the Madrid procedure, an application in the original country is required.
