Have a great idea for a software or an app that you think can be the next Uber, Airbnb or Instagram? LegalVision is an Australian commercial law firm with specialist intellectual property lawyers available to register a trade mark for your software or app. Our intellectual property specialists work online to deliver professional and affordable legal services all across Australia.

A trade mark professional from LegalVision can assist you to register your trade mark by providing advice on what trade mark to choose, identifying what goods and services to seek protection for in your application, and assisting you with overcoming objections and oppositions. Before applying for your trade mark, our lawyers conduct research to determine if there are any risks of objections against your trade mark. We will let you know if your trade mark will be difficult to register and enforce.

LegalVision’s fixed fee intellectual property specialists are available by calling 1300 544 755 or by filling out the form on this page.

Choosing an appropriate brand name for your software or app must consider substantive requirements of a Trade Mark set by the Trade Marks Act 1995. An important requirement is that your mark must be distinctive in relation to other softwares and apps. Common examples of distinctive trade marks accepted by IP Australia and Australian courts include invented words, very rare last names and slogans and composite trade marks. Composite trademarks are those that consist of a combination of word and graphic elements.

A LegalVision IP specialist will make sure your trade mark is different or distinguishable from other trade marks already on the register that has claimed for goods or services similar to yours. If a trade mark that is identical to yours or considered too similar to yours is already on the register, you might have a difficult time getting the trade mark registered. Assessing whether a trade mark is considered too similar to yours will require technical expertise and experience in trade mark law.
