How to Register your Brand in Spain



Registering your commercial brand is essential to safeguard your business and stand out in the market. In this article, we’ll explain to you in a concise and clear manner how to carry out this process in Spain, along with its benefits and key steps.

There are different types of brands, from nominative to mixed, each with its unique characteristics. Registration not only protects your commercial name but also other distinctive elements like sounds or three-dimensional shapes, granting you exclusivity and distinction in the market.

What are the consequences of not registering your brand?

Not registering your brand can have serious consequences, from the risk of third parties appropriating your business identity to the loss of investment in advertising. You could even face the prohibition of using your own brand if someone else registers it legally before you.

What are the advantages of brand registration?

Registering your brand provides legal protection, market differentiation, and streamlines bureaucratic procedures. Moreover, it can generate long-term income and strengthen your position with financial entities. In a competitive market, having a registered brand is an indispensable investment to stand out and thrive.

What is the brand registration process?

From choosing the brand name to submitting the registration request, we’ll guide you through each phase of the process. It’s crucial to carefully select the type of products or services you want to protect and verify the availability of the chosen name before proceeding with the official request.

Once your brand is registered, you’ll have a 10-year surveillance period to protect it from potential infringements. If you detect any unauthorized use of your brand, you can take legal action to stop it and safeguard your rights. It’s advisable to resolve conflicts amicably before resorting to legal actions.
