What can be registered as a trademark in Estonia?
In order to be able to obtain security status, the trademark must meet certain requirements. The main requirement is that the trademark must have distinctive features. To find out how unique the trademark is, a special search is carried out on registered trademarks and filed applications.
You can register different symbols as an Estonian trademark. Depending on the type, there are the following types of trademarks:
- Word trademark.
- Design trademark.
- Combined trademark.
If you need to protect the name or advertising slogan - choose a word trademark. If protection is required for a logo or other graphic element, a design trademark will suit you. The combination of words and graphics you can protect by registering a combined trademark.
Descriptive marks and terms that are widely used are not subject to registration. Also, it is not possible to register symbols that may mislead customers or those that do not comply with ethical and moral standards.
Another feature of registration is the need to select goods or services for which the trademark will be used. In total, there are 45 different classes that are enclosed in an international classifier. If you cannot choose a class for registration, our experts will help you.
