Macau Trademark Registration Instructions

Registering a trademark is not an easy task. Many jurisdictions do not disclose information to the public, and some jurisdictions do not provide reliable data online. Studying similarities with trademarks is a complex task.

  1. Prevent potential imitators from invading your brand,
