The first step to register a trademark is to decide a unique name for your brand. It is important to decide a brand name that must be unique and your own creation. However, you can register the brand name which is already in the market but that trademark is used for different goods or services. It is still subject to the availability of that name in your jurisdiction. The best practice is to create your own brand name in which you will be investing money and time. This practice would save you from several upcoming infringement issues. Spending considerable time at this stage would ease your path to trademark registration in any country.
