It has been a week since we did a snoop through the latest Irish Trademark Applications filed! People often ask me why they need a solicitor or Trademark Agent to register a trademark, and I always tell them ‘You don’t’, but if you don’t, there’s a good chance you’ll do something wrong, most likely either (1) Registering your Trademark in the wrong class, or (2) Applying for a Trademark that has no chance of being registered.
