Every business is looking for a competitive advantage, a way to stand apart from the rest of the pack. Registered trademarks are knowledge-based assets that can give you that edge. They strengthen and deepen brand differentiation and help customers identify you and what you do.
If you use a trademark without registering it, there’s a risk that someone else could register the same or similar mark.
This could cause you a lot of problems. You are allowing them to promote their business using your identity, and you may even have to rebrand as a result. Trademark registration is the best way to protect your brand, business, products and services.
As a business owner, you know the importance of protecting your brand. One way to do that is by registering your trademark. In this blog post, we will explore the cheapest trademark registrations in Australia. Keep reading to learn more!

FAQs Trademark Registrations Australia
You cannot trademark a proper noun, a place name, someone else’s name, or the common term for a product or service. You also cannot trademark a slogan or informational sentence unless it’s closely tied to a specific product or service. In addition, trademark law requires that your trademark be unique and “distinctive” so that people can instantly recognize your brand.
In addition, to qualify for trademark protection, your logo or brand name must be associated with specific products or services. A trademark only protects your exclusive right to use the logo or brand name for the products or services listed on your trademark application. You cannot reserve or “sandbag” a trademark name or phrase for later use with unidentified products or services.
Common law trademark is usually established under the United States law when someone uses a business name, slogan or logo in commerce, even if it's yet registered. Therefore, you may decide not to pay to register a trademark since a common law trademark exists.
However, the common law trademark right is limited to the geographic location where the mark is used against the federal protection customarily acquired when a mark is listed with the USPTO. Hence, unless registered, the use of a mark can be geographically limited, which hampers the ability to grow the brand. On the one hand, a person using a mark in a limited geographic location could be boxed in by another person who offensively registers a similar trademark.
Federal trademark registration for your mark gives you unique benefits not available for common law (unregistered) trademarks. Among other things, a registered trademark owner can sue infringers in federal court and block other people from trying to register a similar trademark in a related field. Registered trademark owners may also block counterfeits of their branded products from being imported Into the country. In addition, if you become involved in a dispute about a domain name, having a registered trademark can help you prove ownership.
A good trademark name includes at least one unique or “distinctive” word, even if it includes common, descriptive, or generic terms. Trademarks are grouped into categories according to how strong they are:
- The strongest type of trademark is a “fanciful” mark, which is a made-up word or phrase. Famous brands “Xerox” and “Kleenex” are examples of fanciful marks.
- An arbitrary mark, such as “Apple” for a computer brand, is another strong type of trademark that uses a real word or words unexpectedly or unusually.
- A “suggestive” mark hints at some characteristic of the products or services covered by the trademark. Suggestive marks combine an imaginative element with a descriptive element. Examples of suggestive marks are “Roach Motel” for a cockroach trap or “Pizza Heaven” for a restaurant.
- A “merely descriptive” mark lacks an imaginative element and is therefore not strong enough to function as a trademark on its own. As an example, “The Meatball Bar” would be considered “merely descriptive” of a gastropub that serves meatballs. If the government deems your trademark to be “merely descriptive,” you will have to prove you’ve been using it in commerce for more than five years or add a substantial logo design. You will not be able to claim exclusive rights in the descriptive parts of the trademark name; these will have to be “disclaimed.”
A registered trademark gives you exclusive rights to use, licence and sell the mark. This means no one else in Australia can commercially use your trademark for the same goods or services you have registered for. It’s also a valuable marketing tool because the value of your trademark increases with the success of your business. This means no one else in Australia can commercially use your trademark for the same goods or services you have registered for. It’s also a valuable marketing tool because the value of your trademark increases with the success of your business.

Our comprehensive report will also advise you of options to overcome difficulties if any are found.

Trademark Name Australia
A trademark is a sign, often referred to as a logo or a brand. It’s used to distinguish the goods and services of one company from those of another. A trademark is anything that distinctly identifies your company and can be a word, a logo or a combination of both. It can even be a device, label, name, signature, letter, numeral, shape of goods, packaging, colour or combination of colours, smell, good movement, or any combination of these.
Registering your trademark gives you the exclusive right to use that mark for ten years, renewable every ten years after that. Once your trademark is registered, you can use the symbol ® next to your trademark. Whilst you’re in the process of registering a trademark (which can take around 8-9 months), you can use the ™ symbol.

+61 (02) 8896 4335

The Australian Trade Marks Act defines a trademark as a sign used or intended to distinguish goods or services dealt with or provided in the course of trade from goods or services so dealt with or provided by another person.
A sign may include any following or combinations: any letter, word, name, signature, numeral, device, brand, heading, label, ticket, aspect of packaging, shape, colour, sound or scent.
According to the Australian Designs Act, a design is the overall appearance of a product resulting from one or more visual features of the product. A visual feature includes the shape, configuration, pattern or ornamentation of a product. The shape and configuration of a product generally relate to the 3D features of a product, whereas the shape and configuration are related to the 2D features of a product. The feel of a product or the materials used in a product is not the visual features.

Alder IP - Trademark Registrations Australia
+61 2 9007 9912
Trademark law is similarly composed of the Trade Marks Act, the trademark registration process with IP Australia, and precedent cases that determine what can or should happen when one business breaches another business's trademark. The difference between a patent and a trademark is that a patent is for the thing itself, while the trademark is used to represent the brand or the product; names, logos, distinguishing marks & stamps, etc.
Whether you believe you need to defend a possible breach or are preparing for registration of trademark and the associated evidentiary documentation, or just want to find out what your options may be, Alder IP’s trademark attorneys can advise and assist.
IP Lawyers For Trademarks
Trademarks are used to distinguish a business’s goods and services from other traders and third parties, bestowing a limited monopoly over the mark. A trademark can be a name, logo, slogan, graphic design or even aspect of packaging. A registered trademark gives a legally enforceable right to commercially use, licence or sell goods and services that it is registered under, and applicants can extend their trademark overseas through the World Intellectual Property Organisation. Our intellectual property lawyers develop effective protection strategies in relation to all types of trademarks and can assist in pursuing or resolving disputes over any trade mark’s use, non-use or conflict with an existing property.
IP Gateway - Trademark Registrations Australia
+617 3808 3572
When a new variety of distinct, uniform and stable plants is developed, an application can be filed for exclusive rights to commercially exploit the variety. Most jurisdictions worldwide offer a specific form of registered intellectual property right for this purpose. In Australia, registered rights for a new plant variety can be obtained under the Plant Breeder’s Rights Act 1994 (the PBR Act). PBR applicants often rely on an agent to assist with the Australian application process. Notably, PBR registration in Australia also requires the services of a ‘Qualified Person’ accredited by the PBR office.
While Australian patent attorneys frequently act as agents for the PBR process, a separate Qualified Person is typically engaged. We are pleased to announce that IP Gateway’s head of life sciences (with a research background in crop biotechnology) has obtained accreditation as a Qualified Person under the PBR Act. Accordingly, unlike the vast majority of Australian patent and trademark firms, IP Gateway now has the capacity to offer both agent and Qualified Person PBR services to clients.
Navigating the processes involved with registering a trademark can be a daunting task if you are trying to navigate on your own. That’s why IP Gateway’s Trade Mark Group is composed of several expert attorneys proficient in trademark law and the processes contained therein.
The Trade Mark Group at IP Gateway comprises Matthew Lord, Michelle Conomos and Wayne Slater. The level of knowledge and experience within this group means that they are more than capable of handling any trademark applications from initial contact with you, the client, right through to finalising the registration and protecting the trademark for its life span.

Generally Registered Trademarks Give Australia-Wide Protection
A key question when registering a trademark is: where will I be protected?
Registration normally confers Australia-wide protection. This is because an Australian trademark registration will – in most cases – give you Australia-wide coverage. This means that you are normally protected across the entire nation but not protected in other countries.
If you trade in Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia, a single trademark registration will be enough to protect you in all of those states. Further, if you have a highly localised business, you will usually prevent people in other states from registering the same or similar names. So, for example, if you have a hairdressing salon called ‘Xandon’, which has one outlet in a regional centre such as Mt Isa, Queensland and a highly localised clientele, you would normally be able to prevent a new salon in Sydney from opening with the same or similar name.
There are some minor exceptions to the rule that registration normally confers Australia-wide protection with the law.
Trademarks Registered With Geographical Limitations
If your trademark is regarded as being descriptive, you might be able to have it registered after providing ‘evidence of use’ to the examiner. However, suppose your evidence of use only shows that your trademark only distinguishes your goods or services in a particular area (e.g. Mt Isa). In that case, your trademark examiner has the right to limit your registered rights to that particular area. It is quite rare for this to happen.
Trademark Applications Giving ‘priority’ Rights In Other Countries
While registering a trademark in Australia doesn’t give you any rights to that trademark in, for example, the US, there is also an exception here. Perhaps an example is the best way to illustrate this.
Imagine you lodge an application for the trademark ‘BeDah’ in Class 25 (clothing) in Australia on 1 June, and then you decide to lodge an application for the same trademark in Class 25 in the United States later the same year. If you apply to do so within six months (i.e. by 30 November) and make your application using the process available under the Madrid Protocol, the United States Patent & Trademarks Office will treat your application as if filed on 1 June.
Why does this matter? Well, it means that you get to ‘keep your place in the queue ahead of other people who might have filed the same or similar trademark in the US after they saw your Australian trademark application go in.

- Date ranges of use
- Whether any elements of the mark are being used together or separately
- The exact nature of goods and services that mark is being used for
- The geographic scope of the trademark use
- How the mark is applied to the goods and services, for example, the goods themselves, packaging, merchandising materials, etc.
- The scale of the use and the organisation using the mark
- The identity of the user – whether it is the owner, a related company or third party under a potential licensing agreement
- Whether the mark is being used to distinguish the origin of the goods or services dealt or a badge of allegiance
- How the mark is applied to the goods or services
- The trade channels through which the goods/services are offered

Trade Mark Registration
An effective trademark strategy is crucial to securing your competitive advantage in an increasingly crowded marketplace. A carefully chosen trademark can be one of your business's most valuable assets, boosting brand identity and helping to differentiate your products and services. In Australia, trademarks can be registered for any ‘sign’ that distinguishes one trader’s goods or services from another. Of course, many of us are familiar with trademarks that consist of words and logos. Still, a trademark can also be made up of any letter, name, signature, numeral, device, brand, aspect of packaging, shape, colour, sound or scent – or a combination of these things.
A trademark that has been registered with the trademarks office or trademarks registry is known as a registered trademark. A registered trademark is a valuable asset for the owner and provides a number of important rights, including:
- the exclusive right to use the trademark in relation to the goods/services for which it is registered
- the right to take action for infringement against a third party using a substantially identical or deceptively similar trademark for the same or similar goods/services
- The right to sell and licence the trademark.
We have extensive experience dealing with all aspects of trademark filing and registration in Australia, New Zealand and internationally. Our highly skilled trademark attorneys will work closely with you in developing a trademark strategy to ensure your commercial objectives are met, and your assets are well-protected.

Trademark regulations in Australia
In the growing modern reality, copyright has paramount importance. The development of technology and globalisation have made copyright protection more difficult than in previous centuries. The speed of information dissemination has made it more difficult to protect copyright as the control mechanism becomes more complex in the age of the Internet.
However, resilience to modern challenges has further refined the standard of copyright protection. Copyright covers a wide range, including the most important trademark regulation. What is a trademark, how is it registered, and what rights does it give to the owner? In this article, we will briefly review the issues related to this topic.
A trademark is any character displayed graphically and can be distinguished by one enterprise manufactured goods and services rendered, second goods produced by the enterprise and rendered from service. A symbol can be a word, words, human name, letters, numbers, sounds, images, a three-dimensional figure, the shape of the goods, the packaging, or other external decoration of the goods in colour or using a combination of colours.
