Claiming the Color of a Trademark

An aspect that is usually forgotten when registering a trademark and protecting it, is precisely the color of it. Determining the color of the trademark is perhaps one of the most important decisions at the time of creation and later becomes the base of the advertisement of the company or product that it represents, included in publications on social networks, business cards, colors used in official documentations etc. Given the above, if the color is really special, distinctive and is an element that you want to protect, you should know that our legislation through Law 380 “Law of Trademarks and Other Distinctive Signs” provides in its article 3, that among the signs which can be considered a brand, colors are also included.
