A trade mark can be any sign capable of graphic representation which can distinguish the goods or services of one enterprise from those of other enterprises. The basic necessity of distinctiveness is common both to domestic trade marks and those which apply internationally such as the EU Community trade mark.
The registered trade mark system allows applicants to register a mark and thereby obtain protection. Governed in the UK by the Trade Marks Act 1994, it affords registrants protection from exact or confusingly similar imitations of a mark by competitors who, without authority, use such imitations on the same, similar or even dissimilar goods or services.
