Dubai trademark registration services can protect your company’s name, logo, and slogan. The little ‘TM’ or ‘R’ you see under brand logos signify that the particular logo, name, and slogan are protected.
Copyright can also protect original works created by individuals or companies, such as literary works, plays, music, movies, songs, software, books, and publications.
