What brand is different from brand ?2020-05-18T15:42:36+07:00

Brand (English mark: Trade mark) is widely used in the world and in Vietnam for a long time. This is a standardized concept in Vietnamese and international law. According to the Vietnam Intellectual Property Law, the trademark is “signs used to distinguish goods or services of the same or similar types from different production and business establishments”. Trademarks can be made up of traditional signs, their letters, numbers, image marks, colors or combinations. However, with the strong development of technology and the current media, many countries’ laws have also adopted trademark protection as new objects including sound signs, animation clips , the image changes with the perspective (hologram) even the smell, taste and feeling. Besides service marks (service marks) are also accepted in parallel with trademarks used for goods

Brand (English: Brand) is a new term that has been widely used in our country recently when Vietnam implemented open and integration policies. Unlike trademarks, brand is not a concept that is internationalized as well as in Vietnamese law, so it is understood and used at times but not uniform, sometimes even abused. This term is used in commerce, marketing and advertising only signs or groups of signs that characterize a business or product or service. Trademarks are often one of the most valuable assets of a business in business, share contributions, asset transfers or licensing rights.

A brand may be one or a combination of the following factors:


  • Featured words

  • Logo (logo)

  • Motto (slogan)

  • Colors

  • Style

  • Audio

  • Smell, taste

  • Motion

  • Service methods, customer care

With the above practice, comparative comments can be made between the brand and the brand as follows:


  • Trademarks and trademarks can theoretically be priced for the purpose of identifying assets, contributing capital or transferring, transferring rights. However, because of the nature they are not quite the same, the assessment must be suitable for each specific object.

  • In many cases, a brand may be a trademark or a geographical indication or a trade name of a Company. However, such subjects often have to be widely known or must achieve a certain reputation in the market.

  • A brand may include other intellectual property objects such as industrial designs, copyright and others that are not proprietary rights. intelligence like private methods of service, customer care …

  • The registration and protection of trademarks are stipulated in the Intellectual Property Law, but the trademark is not legalized, so the protection of trademarks is often complicated. more complicated and requires integrated measures.
