Does Trade Mark registration give ABSOLUTE protection of intellectual property to us?
No but is is seen by courts, if it comes to civil action, as a very important factor in defence of your IP.
Hi, Ben, Thank for your reply. Could we apply for a colour and protect for all the colors?
Trademark Registration affords better protection of your IP in the courts. If someone else tried to Trademark Registration your exact logo but with a different colour, I doubt the Australian trademarks office would approve their application but if they did, your competition would need to mount a significant court challenge if they wanted to stop you from using your prior Trademark Registration registration in a different colour. Tou can apply, at the same time, for Trademark Registration registration of your logo in various colour "SERIES" for an additional total (not each) fee of $99 Trade Mark SERIES examples:

How long does Australian Trade Mark Registration Last?
Why do you package Australian Trade Mark services?
It's cheaper and more coherent project management for you than a trade mark search, an application, a registration payment, a domain name registration, a registered trading name, etc etc, and though you might not realise it now, there are other bits of intellectual property such as KEYWORD RICH domain names that not only strengthen your Australian Trade Mark claim but also assists with web marketing and in particular site popularity due to search engine success.
