If your company's brand is built around a distinctive logo or symbol you're not alone. Most businesses separate themselves from the competition with a distinctive logo or trademark for which they have exclusive rights.

Our Beijing trademark lawyer reminds you to register your trademark in Beijing to protect your logo, brand and product in Beijing to prevent counterfeiting or illegal copying.

Preparation before registering a trademark in Beijing

Why get a trademark? There are many reasons businesses obtain trademarks. They include: 

  1. Develop an identity. Your trademark gives you a unique identity that no one else can use and helps people recognize your mark and associate it with your business or services.
  2. Legal protection. With a registered trademark, you can legally stop anyone from registering or using your mark or a similar mark. After five years, your trademark becomes incontestable.
  3. Internet protection. A trademark protects other businesses from fraudulently using your name on the internet and stealing business from you. In addition, no one can enter an internet domain address that in any way infringes on your trademark.

Independent Contractor Agreements govern the terms of a job or project whereby a business engages a non-employee independent contractor to perform a specific task or project. The two forms of relationship are treated very differently under Chinese labor and employment law, and in contexts as diverse as payroll taxes and workers compensation, secondary liability for the acts of another, and intellectual property rights from works for hire.
