With a trademark registration you are able to protect your brand(s) properly. With a trademark registration you can act against third parties that infringe your trademark rights, logo or packaging. A trademark registration is not only important to act against third parties, but with a registration you also prevent third parties from “stealing” your trademark. In principle, trademark protection does not apply without registration!
Brand protection in the Netherlands is regulated at the Benelux level (also including Belgium and Luxemburg). Brand protection at European and International level is possible too. A trademark is usually registered for 10 years. We keep the trademark in portfolio during this period and you may renew the registration for the same period endlessly.
The fees for a Benelux trademark application is € 675,- for an European Union registration € 1.500,-. This concerns the complete trademark application process; no costs will be charged afterwards. We will be happy to send you our brochures, including fees, on request. If you require a trademark registration or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
