Why Should One Register a Trade Mark?

The value and benefit of registering a trade mark, especially in the case of new businesses, is often overlooked. Most business owners fail to realise that up to 80% and more of a business's total value resides in its non-tangible assets. It is therefore imperative that a business owner takes the necessary steps to protect those assets and to prohibit someone else from using it without the necessary authorisation.
