What is a brand?
A trademark is a sign registered (reserved) in the trademark register by a proprietor for the goods and services it designates, in a given territory, valid for 10 years and renewable.
It allows the capitalisation of a reputation: if the product or service is good, the buyer will be favourably disposed towards the brand under which the product is sold. Renewable indefinitely, the brand aggregates prestige and durability of income.
It makes it possible to identify know-how and quality, for example through labelling processes, in addition to the application of designations of origin and geographical indications.
It is transferable or licensable, in particular in the context of franchise or distribution agreements.
Difficulties in trade mark law may arise from conflicts between trade marks, or with domain names or other signs, such as the name, trade name, company names, appellations and signs, a Community trade mark, a foreign trade mark.
Trademark disputes often involve distribution and franchise networks and raise competition disputes. The firm manages related commercial disputes.
Brand disparagement may involve the rules of unfair competition, parasitism, consumer law or defamation (see the "communication law" tab).
