CEO Briefing IP Australia

Thursday Mar 30, 2023

Thursday Mar 30, 2023

In today’s episode I am joined by Lauren Stokoe, a Director with IP Australia, talking about who needs to consider registering a trademark, how you can use the new tool TM Checker to do preliminary research on your business name (or even a logo someone develops for you) and what the process is for registering a trademark for your business.
IP Australia approached me as part of their educational efforts to better inform small business owners of the role that registering a trademark can play in their business – even when they are just starting out. I eagerly accepted, as over the years I have seen first-hand how business trademarks are so confusing and can feel like a big business decision. I hope this episode helps to simplify trademarking so you can confidently make the best decisions for your business.
