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.
