I have not started to use my trade mark but I intend to use it to market my product or service. Should I register my mark?
If you intend to use the mark for a product or service, you should take steps to protect it, even if you have not used it. By registering your mark with IPOS, you will be protected under the Trade Marks Act 1998 (2020 Rev. Ed.) in Singapore.
However, do bear in mind that non-use of a mark may result in a registered mark being revoked. For a mark that is not registered, upon use of the trade mark and the establishment of goodwill in the marketplace, you may rely on the common law action of passing off to protect your mark.
