If you are considering developing a mobile app then you must also look into the trademarks and copyrights for your mobile app product.
A trademark can be described as a symbol, word, or words that have been legally registered as being representative of a company’s product, service or brand.
If you have not registered trademarks and have been using the same combination of symbols and words for an extended period then it is possible sometimes to establish a trademark claim, by having used it for a long time.
A symbol can be your logo or even a wordmark. It is an image or visual element that you closely associate your business activities with. It could be a bird, a shape or even a specifically designed and drawn visual creation.
When considering the impact of today’s digital world, having a strong and clear logo for your mobile app is very important. If your mobile application is unique and special then you must also look into protecting your intellectual property.

This can also be true for those who may copy the name of another business. You may have a business called ‘Top Wood Team’ and offer carpentry services having operated it for the last 10 years.
If another company were to use the same name and you had registered the name under trademarks, then you would be able to make a claim in a court of law to have the name of the new business changed and even obtain compensation.
The offending party would have had to use the same name or symbol and also offer caprenarety services as well within a similar operating area as your existing business.
