“Your brand acts as a signpost – it’s how customers keep coming back to you. Don’t protect your brand and all your hard work could end up pointing customers to a competitor. Only a registered trademark gives you legal ownership of your brand; making it simple, cost effective and fast for SMEs is a real break through”.

“We’re delighted to be working with Whois to provide online trademark registration services” said Remarqueble co-founder Ben Lehman.
