File and protect a trademark
A trademark is one of the essential elements of a company's intangible assets. It is the distinctive sign that allows it to promote its products and services but also to distinguish itself from its competitors. This is why it is essential to protect it effectively by registering an online application.
Definition of a registrable trademark
Not all signs can be registered as trademarks. To be registered, a trademark must be:
- Distinctive: the trademark should not be a generic word or expression used to describe your product or service.

The trademark should be different from the domain name which is the name given to a website. Unlike a trademark, it is not an industrial property right. However, it has obvious commercial and strategic value. That is why it is necessary to protect it.
Why should a trademark or domain name be protected?
The trademark is an essential element of a company's business strategy. Not protecting it gives competitors the opportunity to take it over. To protect it a trademark needs to be registered.
In France, the filing application confers a monopoly on exploitation in French territory for 10 years, renewable indefinitely. This means that only the owner can use it and can sue any infringer.
When choosing a domain name, it must be registered with an approved domain registrar. However, this does not protect it from being copied so it is advisable to also register it as a trademark.
Fidealis offers you a simple, quick solution for the registration of your trademark.
When copyright is registered, the trademark is protected from the moment it is conceived.
That is why at Fidealis, we offer Copyright registration that immediately protects trademarks and domain names. If a competitor copies a trademark or domain name before the filing application is registered, legal action can still be pursued for unfair competition.
