Accordingly, the logo when registered can include letters, pictures or a combination of both pictures and words. The owner has a design or cannot design to create a distinctive signature of his logo. In order to distinguish it from other parties in the same field of activity.

This monopoly field may be within the current business or in the future in which the business wants to invest. Accordingly, the owner should consider a wide range of registration, since the addition of trademark protection coverage is not as complementary as it is in a business line. Accordingly, a completely new application process must be approved. If the scope of products and services when filing an intellectual property registration application, the NOIP's logo does not belong to the same registration.

Step 3: Determine whether the registered owner should be a corporate or an individual

With logo registration at the NOIP, the owner should determine whether the subject under whose name is registered is a company or an individual. In general, any owner intends to use the trademark. Or a third party must submit an application. That person can be a legal person or an individual without the difference of interest between the parties.
