How do you trademark a name in the Philippines?

A trademark is a sign that distinguishes the goods or services of one company from those of another. In the Philippines, it is possible to obtain a trademark registration through the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL). The trademark registration process involves filing a trademark application, conducting a search to ensure the mark is not already in use, and then waiting for approval from the IPOPHL. Once approved, the trademark is valid for 10 years and can be renewed for another 10 years. It is important to note that the trademark registration only applies in the Philippines and does not extend to other countries.
