Trade Mark Protect is an insurance policy to help pay legal fees that you may incur in defending your trade mark from challenges (oppositions to registration or applications for removal), either when you first file, or during the lifetime of the trade mark.
The number of trade mark filings and oppositions made in Australia is increasing each year. Costs to defend your trade mark from challenges can be crippling to your business, so you should consider Trade Mark Protect.
