The first thing a customer or client notices about a company is their unique "face" – whether it is in the form of a name, phrase, logo, word, or symbol. Your company's face or trademark represents your company and should be protected accordingly. Should a company neglect to register their trademark, there can be a variety of consequences. Sometimes, another company as a similar logo, name, or phrase, and can cause both businesses to lose its image. A could end up losing their trademark and paying monetary damages for copyright infringement. The company that didn't register their trademark may have to re-design the entire logo, change the business name, and create a new slogan.
