A trademark is a way of identifying a unique product or service, such as a business name or logo. Learn more about trademarks, what you need to do before registering, and how long protection lasts. A trademark is not the same as a company, business, or domain name. However, you can have exclusive rights to your business name by protecting it with a trademark.
A registered trademark gives you exclusive rights to use, licence and sell the mark. This means no one else in Australia can commercially use your trademark for the same goods or services you have registered for. It’s also a valuable marketing tool because the value of your trademark increases with the success of your business.
4webmarketing provides Australian trademark registration services to aid business owners or traders and their products and protect their rights. The purpose of an Australian trademark is to ensure that there is a clear and visible connection established between the business and its goods and services.
The trademark Australia system has to indicate the direct connection by distinguishing the business and their goods and services from another business, which cannot be confused or mistaken with another trademark in Australia of another business owner or entrepreneur.
However, the cost of trademark registration can often be prohibitive for small businesses. In this blog post, we'll discuss how to get the cheapest trademark registrations Australia has to offer. So if you're looking to protect your brand, read on!

FAQs Trademark Registrations Australia
You can do a quick search on IP Australia’s website to see if the trademark is registered or currently being registered. You can also contact a separate service provider for more in-depth analysis and trademark search.
They will also determine the likelihood of your trademark being successfully registered in Australia. To help ensure that your trademark does not conflict with a registered mark, you should search the free Australian Trade Mark Online Search System for registered or pending trademarks associated with similar goods or services.
A registered trademark gives you exclusive rights to use, licence and sell the mark. This means no one else in Australia can commercially use your trademark for the same goods or services you have registered for. It’s also a valuable marketing tool because the value of your trademark increases with the success of your business.
An Australian trademark provides protection only within Australia. However, there are two ways Australian trademark owners can seek trademark protection overseas:
- Via an application filed directly to each country
- Via a single international application filed through the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) nominating the Madrid member countries in which protection is sought
There is one good reason to register your trademark right away: delaying your application increases the risk of infringement. To ensure you retain the rights to your trademark, you should consider filing an application now, even if your product is not yet market-ready.
You can apply to register a trademark before you start offering products or services under that brand to the public. Unregistered trademarks are only protected if they are well known to the public. A registered trademark is presumed valid. Certificate of registration of the ownership of the mark.
It usually takes between 12-18 months for a trademark to be registered, with some cases stretching to 2 years. The length of the process does not affect the ‘effective’ date of registration, which will be the original filing date. Lastly, it is important to note that trademark registration takes a minimum of eight months to achieve registration. This means it is essential to get an application filed as soon as possible to ensure that your mark is as well-protected as it can be.

Trademarks were created by Daniel McIntosh, trademark attorney. Daniel worked as an intellectual property lawyer in traditional law firms for several years. He quickly realised that much of the work of a law firm is administrative and paralegal work. Believed there could be a way that clients only paid for legal work and not a paralegal or administrative work. And so, ten years ago, he started his firm, which has since gone on to challenge the big established law firms, at only a fraction of the costs.
How is this done? Essentially by digitising and modernising every system and function of a trademark attorney firm. We don’t have traditional offices, don’t have nice couches, and don’t offer coffee. However, we do have an array of trademark specialists ready to help you at a moment’s notice. We use the most sophisticated digital management system, we always get back to you immediately, and we still have a 91% success rate.
Every trademark is handled personally by one of our trademark specialists to ensure your matter gets the proper attention.

Quick Off The Mark Trademarks applies modern commercial principles in running a business and can help you develop your business whichever way you want to go. This website will give you a flavour of what Quick Off The Mark Trademarks can do, but there is no substitute for meeting the minds and working together.
For most business people, deciding whether to call a trademark professional should be like deciding whether to go to the doctor. If you have severe chest pain, odds are you’re not going to hesitate to call your GP or make it to the emergency room. But if you just have a bad cold, you might wait a few days to see if it turns into pneumonia before you drag yourself to the dreaded doctor’s office. But in other instances, it might not be so clear.
For instance, do you need a trademark professional when you’re about to start a business? Dissolving one? Buying or selling a business? Hiring high-level employees? Since legalities seem to permeate even the most basic business decisions — and trademark professionals have helped this perception along — you might be afraid to tackle a trademark issue without the help of a professional trademark consultant.
Or, on the flip side, you might have had a bad experience with a lawyer or a trademark attorney in the past that was enough to put you off them forever, no matter what the cost. Well, don’t despair! Quick Off The Mark are professional trademark consultants who emphasise you, the client, and will provide you with the best trademark advice at the best price.
Our trademark services make you stand out amongst your competitors and ensure that consumers identify your products and services from those of your competitors. Therefore, it is important to properly register your trademark in order to protect your unique brand, as well as your goodwill. In addition, our trademark services protect you from competitors gleaning business off of your success through the unlawful use of your mark.
Your trademarks can include your business name and logo, as well as shapes, colours, scents, images, and packaging, so long as these things uniquely identify your products and services. For example, the use of the following symbols can recognise a trademark:
- The trademark symbol can be used for an unregistered trademark for marketing goods or services.
- The registered trademark symbol ®, which can only be used once a mark has been successfully registered with IP Australia. It is unlawful to use this symbol in association with an unregistered mark.
We believe that providing comprehensive, start-to-finish trademark services is important in order to see clients through to the final stage of trademark applications – trademark registration. Our trademark services include trademark searches, applications, and registrations. We also offer assistance in trademark infringement cases, opposition matters, and more. Not only do we provide Australian registration trademark services: we can also assist you with international trademark registration matters.

We have been engaged by trade marks attorneys, patent attorneys, barristers, firm-based lawyers and in-house counsel. We begin our process with a common law trademark search, and our investigations and subsequent reports respond to a frame of reference that includes:
- Date ranges of use
- Whether any elements of the mark are being used together or separately
- The exact nature of goods and services that mark is being used for
- The geographic scope of the trademark use
- How the mark is applied to the goods and services, for example, the goods themselves, packaging, merchandising materials, etc.
- The scale of the use and the organisation using the mark
- The identity of the user – whether it is the owner, a related company or third party under a potential licensing agreement
- Whether the mark is being used to distinguish the origin of the goods or services dealt or a badge of allegiance
- How the mark is applied to the goods or services
- The trade channels through which the goods/services are offered

Queensland Government - Trademark Registrations Australia
13 QGOV (13 7466)
When applying to register a trademark, you need to search existing registered marks to determine whether:
- the trademark is distinctive enough to allow registration
- The trademark conflicts with any pre-existing registered marks or applications for the same kinds of goods or services as your product or service.
Once the application is accepted, it is advertised in the Australian Official Journal of Trade Marks. Interested parties are given the opportunity to oppose registration on certain specified grounds for three months. In the absence of any opposition, the mark is registered upon payment of the registration fee.
Requirements For Registration
To be registrable, your trademark must meet two major requirements:
No Conflict With Existing Trademarks
Your trademark must not conflict with pre-existing registered (or unregistered) trademarks.
You will not be able to register a trademark that is identical or deceptively similar to another trader’s registered trademark if the goods and services are similar. This is because having similar trademarks for similar products could confuse customers and lead to the other trader demanding that you cease use and take legal action against you if you do not.
To help ensure that your trademark does not conflict with a registered mark, you should search the free Australian Trade Mark Online Search System for registered or pending trademarks associated with similar goods or services. You should also do preliminary searches to help ensure that your trademark does not conflict with any similar names or marks being used by other traders, even if they are not registered as trademarks. A simple scan of the internet may reveal evidence of potential conflicts. The owners of unregistered trademarks may oppose the registration process for your mark or, in some circumstances, even take legal action under the common law of ‘passing off.
Your trademark must be sufficiently distinctive and not just a descriptive term ordinarily applied to the goods or services or a mark that other traders would need to use in the ordinary course of trade. Distinctiveness can be inherent or acquired. Inherent distinctiveness is the natural and unique appearance of your trademark.
The distinctiveness of a trademark can also be acquired through use in the marketplace; for example, if you have used the trademark extensively before filing for registration, your trademark may already distinguish the designated goods or services as being those of your business. Your trademark will be seen as sufficiently distinctive if you can establish this, and registration will be granted.
Trademarks that are sufficiently distinctive and unlikely to be used by other traders include:
- Invented or ‘concocted’ words such as KODAK. Note that simply putting two known words together to form a new word does not necessarily constitute an ‘invented’ word. For example, GOODBYE would not be considered an invented word.
- suggestive or emotive words such as LUCKY STRIKE for matches
- Words that are not descriptive of the goods and services, such as PICNIC for clothing.
The fee structure for registering a trademark depends on the number of classes under which your goods or services are categorised. Most of the fees will be a multiple of the number of classes. In addition, there are a number of other fees that apply to other actions that may be required in relation to your trademark application. See IP Australia for a full list of these fees and payment methods. Legal fees for advising on trademark issues, preparing applications and progressing a trademark application to registration are additional to any fees payable to IP.
Australia and should be considered before seeking advice.
IP Australia offers an online service that can help you determine the suitability of your proposed trademark for registration. Called TM Headstart and available through IP Australia’s online services, it can help you identify any barriers that could prevent you from registering your proposed trademark. Fees for accessing the service are approximately $90 per class.
Each trademark is registered in relation to a range of goods and services. Following the Nice international classification system, the Trade Marks Act 1995 (Cth) defines 34 classes of goods and 11 classes of services. A full list of classes can be found on the IP Australia website.
You need to decide under which class (es) you wish to protect your trademark. This requires identifying all goods and services in relation to which the mark will be used and matching them to the defined classes.
It is then necessary to prepare a specification describing your particular subset of goods and services within the class. It is not acceptable to simply specify ‘All (goods/services) in this class’. There are particular conventions for describing goods and services. Assistance can be found through the use of the classification search facility on the IP Australia website or by obtaining trademark attorney advice. A registered trademark only provides protection against the use of that mark by others in relation to the goods and services covered by the registration or similar goods and services.

- With a Head Start application, your trademark does not appear in the system until an examiner reviews it and you’ve decided to proceed with the publication and advertisement of your trademark.
- With a Head Start application, your trademark will be examined within five working days of the request, and you can talk to the examiner to address any problems. It means your trademark is assessed prior to filing.
- Your trademark is reviewed on absolute and relative grounds, and it can be refused if there is a similar mark or if the mark is merely descriptive.
- No specimens of use or dates of use are required.
- You are looking at a straightforward trademark application eight months before your trademark registers.

Broad Australian Protection
Registered trademarks provide coverage for the entire Australian jurisdiction. This means, for example, you can alert the Australian Customs and Border Protection Services to the importation of goods that infringe your trademark and seize them from entering the country. Trademarks are registered for ten years but can be renewed indefinitely.
Control Your Brand
Registered trademarks can be licensed and sold to other parties, creating valuable assets for your business. In addition, this gives you the flexibility and control to choose who and how other companies/people can use your name, should you decide to licence it.

The Australian Trade Marks Act defines a trademark as a sign used or intended to distinguish goods or services dealt with or provided in the course of trade from goods or services so dealt with or provided by another person.
A sign may include any following or combinations: any letter, word, name, signature, numeral, device, brand, heading, label, ticket, aspect of packaging, shape, colour, sound or scent.
According to the Australian Designs Act, a design is the overall appearance of a product resulting from one or more visual features of the product. A visual feature includes the shape, configuration, pattern or ornamentation of a product. The shape and configuration of a product generally relate to the 3D features of a product, whereas the shape and configuration are related to the 2D features of a product. The feel of a product or the materials used in a product is not the visual features.

Alder IP - Trademark Registrations Australia
+61 2 9007 9912
Trademark law is similarly composed of the Trade Marks Act, the trademark registration process with IP Australia, and precedent cases that determine what can or should happen when one business breaches another business's trademark. The difference between a patent and a trademark is that a patent is for the thing itself, while the trademark is used to represent the brand or the product; names, logos, distinguishing marks & stamps, etc.
Whether you believe you need to defend a possible breach or are preparing for trademark registration and the associated evidentiary documentation or want to find out what your options may be, Alder IP’s trademark attorneys can advise and assist.
IP Lawyers For Trademarks
Trademarks are used to distinguish a business’s goods and services from other traders and third parties, bestowing a limited monopoly over the mark. A trademark can be a name, logo, slogan, graphic design or even aspect of packaging. A registered trademark gives a legally enforceable right to commercially use, licence or sell goods and services that it is registered under, and applicants can extend their trademark overseas through the World Intellectual Property Organisation. Our intellectual property lawyers develop effective protection strategies in relation to all types of trademarks and can assist in pursuing or resolving disputes over any trade mark’s use, non-use or conflict with an existing property.

Australian Patent And Trademark Registrations
1300 138 361
Many clients move to our Patent and Trademark Attorney Firm because we invest the extra time to protect their longer-term position. It also frees them up to concentrate on their business, and they sleep better at night knowing the legalities are being taken care of properly. Our firm’s goal is to minimise litigation risk and exposure. Our Patent and Trademark Attorney firm has a proven track record with optimising patents, designs and trademarks for enforceability (so that copycats don’t exploit gaps).
Our firm also has one of the best track records in arguing applications through the Trademark Office when refused, something not all firms are geared up to do. You do not find this outcome until later when the patent, trademark or design application is assessed. Applying 23 years of patent and trademark Court knowledge and experience when applying for new Patent Applications, Design Applications, or Trademark Applications can make all the difference in the longer term.
Our Attorney firm follows updates to the Patent Act, Trademark Act and Design Act. In addition, our Attorneys spend substantial time reviewing many Court cases to gain knowledge on how to file better patent, trademark and design applications for our clients. As a result, a handful of Court cases that make pertinent legal points are outlined here in our blog section.
Our Attorneys also attend patent attorney conferences and seminars to ensure our clients benefit from the latest correct content for patent, design and trademark applications. It is not the Government’s responsibility to advise you of content mistakes, flaws or whether the patent, design or trademark is technically correct.
IP Australia processes applications but does not check your patent, design or trademark application for flaws that make enforcement problematic or cause the rights to be cancelled at Court. So our attorney services are essential to ensure your patent, design, and trademark applications meet the legal requirements to ensure proper enforcement. Unfortunately, this problem won’t be discovered until the applications are put to the test well into the future, either through an opposition or in Court.
Need A Trademark Registered?
A Trademark protects a brand, logo, slogan or name so that you can distinguish your business brand registration in Australia from your competitors. Trademark Registration in Australia is recommended so you can enforce and prevent other businesses from securing rights to your brand. You can also trademark a company name registration in Australia and a business name in Australia.
What isn’t well known is that a Trademark is only as good as the lodged details, which the Government does not assess. Understanding the trademark laws and your business to ensure that the correct legal details are lodged is essential otherwise, your trademark rights can be removed (or cancelled). A Registered Trademark protects the brand and provides Australia-wide exclusive rights for you to use your trademark in respect of certain goods and services that it is registered for.
A Trademark also supports your entitlement to an A.S.I.C. Registration featuring the trademark, such as a company name or business name. Likewise, domain names can be protected and controlled if you have registered the domain name (website) as a Trademark. Importantly you should never purchase a domain name without checking who owns the trademark.
A Trademark Registration allows you to enforce your Trademark rights to claim through Federal Court compensation (damages) or lost profit when a rival has used your trademark. Contrary to belief, an A.S.I.C. Registration for a business name, company name or domain name DOES NOT provide any legal rights or ownership of a brand or logo. Only the Trademark Registration does, and only if you comply and meet the requirements of Trademark law. Trademark requirements are not part of the Trademark Application process but are ongoing compliance and obligations as you trade with the trademark. Only a legal practitioner can guide you through this as your business trades.
