Trademarks & Copyrights

A trademark is a brand’s signature.

Products and services are divided into 45 classes according to the NICE (International Classification of Goods and Services) classification agreement established in 1957 which is adopted Ghana. Each class represents a certain type of product or service by which there are 34 classes for goods and 11 classes for services. Classification of products and services is important to create a guideline for each product and service to be followed and protects your trademark from possible future infringement.
