Benefits for Trademark Registration in UAE
Penalties for Trademark Infringement
If you have got a product’s trademark registered, no one except you is allowed to use it. Infringing someone else’s trademark is a legal offense in UAE and the offender will invite some serious consequences. The penalty for violating someone’s trademark is an imprisonment sentence and a fine of at least Dh. 5000. The following incidents are said to be a violation of the Trademark (Trademark Infringement): Any individual who forges or imitates a legally licensed trademark in order to deceive the public, as well as someone who uses a fabricated or imitated trademark in bad faith. Anyone who uses a licensed trademark owned by a third party without permission or puts it on his goods in bad faith. Anyone who knowingly sells offers for sale or negotiation or acquires for sale goods bearing a forged, imitated, or illegally placed trademark, as well as anyone who knowingly provides or offers to supply services under a forged, imitated, or illegally placed trademark, is guilty of trademark infringement. Why Should you Register your Trademark as a Business Owner? Theft is an uncomfortable feeling for anyone; you may feel violated and insecure for a short or long time afterward. If this has ever happened to you, you’ve most likely taken steps to avoid a similar misfortune in the future, such as being more vigilant about personal protection and securing adequate insurance coverage. Theft of intellectual property, on the other hand, is a form of theft that many people are unaware of. If you wish to shield your brand or innovations from exploitation, you should consider filing a trademark, which will then be extended to all of your products or trademarks, providing you with an assurance that your ideas will be protected and that all legitimate income will be returned to you.
