For trademark applicants
A trademark is a symbol that allows you to distinguish your goods and services from other similar ones. Your trademark is also a part of your company’s property that is worth protecting by registering it. You can sell, pledge or license your trademark.
A trademark may be, for example:
- a word or a set of words
- a figurative element
- a slogan
- a sound or
- a combination of any of these.
You can apply to register your trademark at the PRH in Finnish or in Swedish. Before you submit your application, go through the conditions of registration and search our databases to check that there are no earlier marks or company names registered which might prevent your registration being accepted. Renew your trademark every 10 years.
