"Trade Mark Membership Offer What is it? All businesses own Intellectual Property (IP). One of the key forms of IP is trade marks. A trade mark is usually a sign (logo) that consumers associate with the provision of goods and/or services. It is the reputation of that business and the attractive force that draws in custom. Trade marks are vital to all businesses and steps should be taken to ensure that your rights are protected by having appropriate trade mark protection in place. Most businesses need to register their trade mark. As a member of The Business Network you can now benefit from a discounted rate for filing a trade mark application. What you get: 1. 10% discount on professional fees for a UK trade mark application in up to three classes and with a ten term limit on the specification per class; 2. Our professional fee would be in the region of £750 (+ VAT) for filing a trade mark application in up to three classes ? for Samphire Club members, we fix that fee then apply the 10% discount; 3.
