    Hello, a friend of mine has several classified ads websites for different countries. He does not give any paid services, the websites are totally free. My question is: Should he register as a trademarks his logos and the name of the websites and HOW since he does not own a business ?! He wants only to protect the names and the logos from being used elswere. If trademark not possible is there any other ways to do that ?! Because I know that there is a possibility someone with business to register them as a trademark and then they will be the legal owners or I am wrong ?!

    Thank you in advance

    Your friend can trademark the logos however standard copyright should suffice in this situation. It does serve you protection as copyright is automatic and trademarking in the situation would seem unnecessarily expensive.

    Yeah I wouldn't bother at this point, at least wait until the site is established and monetized.

    In the case of your friend, the trademark does not matter. But personally, my opinion if its unique logos are better to give them a trademark.

    Thank you for the response!
    Thanks! Well he will not do it payd, it will remain free. Only winnings from Adsens.
    Thank you. This is my opinion too, but since is too expensive and there is no waranty that they will be accepted... and the website is free. I dont see it usefull. But that is why asked here, because was not shure what advice to give him since does not have much winnings. Adsense is doing grate to pay the bills but nothing more.
