What is the difference between a brand and a trademark?

trademark is a mark that legally represents something, usually a business, by their goods or services. A brand name, however, is the name that a business chooses for one of their products. A brand identifies a specific product or name of a company.

Be aware that registration of a business name, company name or domain name does not in itself give you any exclusive ownership or proprietary rights to use the business name—only a trade mark can give you that kind of protection.

Any feature (or combination of features) that distinguishes your goods or services from others can be registered as a trade mark, such as a letter, number, word, phrase, sound, smell, shape, logo, picture or aspect of packaging.

If your business is bringing a unique product or service to market and will be using some form of branding such as your business name painted on the side of your truck, a trade mark is a legally enforceable way to protect it.

Trademark Singapore (IPOS Singapore)

A trademark can add value to your business. Using a trademark can help customers easily identify and remember your products and services, allowing you to build customer loyalty and protect your market share. Once you register your trademark, you will enjoy a monopoly over its use. You may:
License it to third parties
Sell it for a sum
If you have successfully registered a trade mark, you can use the ® symbol next to your mark. If you use the ™ symbol, this tells others that you are using the logo or name as a trade mark, but the mark may not be registered or protected under trade mark laws. Once your trade mark is registered, it will be protected for 10 years. You may renew the registration upon its expiry.
