I have a question for the trademark experts out there:
Is it possible to trademark a name (e.g. uniquename) or does the trademark only pertain to a logo or typeface? And is it possible to register both a name and a logo (to be used separately and together)? We already have a (Pty) Ltd company registered with the same name we wish to trademark.
Also, once the trademark application is in place, are we able to use the TM sign on the name / logo?
(The CIPC (www.cipc.co.za) does not provide that much information pertaining to registering trademarks, and attempts to phone (no answer) or email (generic reply) do not go far.)
