Trademarks are territorial in nature. In order to get the best protection you will need to file in those countries where you intend to market your products and services. It is however, relatively easy and inexpensive to file a Community Trade Mark (CTM) which will provide you with cover in 25 different European Countries for one filing fee. If you intend to use your trade mark in more than one European country then a CTM is by far the most economical way of getting the protection you require. A registered trademark is lasts for 10 years and allows for renewal before the expiry date.
