Difference between Market Access and Compliance
Market Access: U.S. exporters sometimes encounter trade barriers. For instance, a country may only allow products to enter the most inconvenient port or a country may treat imported goods differently than domestic goods.
MAC receives calls from businesses, associations, and international U.S. commercial offices, and we then map out a plan to solve the problem.
Compliance: The United States is a party in over 250 trade agreements. But trade agreements are only paper unless foreign governments comply with their obligations.
MAC addresses compliance problems quickly and aggressively. Once a problem is identified, we organize a team to outline and implement a solution.
Trademark – A trademark (popularly known as brand name) in layman’s language is a visual symbol which may be a word signature, name, device, label, numerals or combination of colours used by one undertaking on goods or services or other articles of commerce to distinguish it from other similar goods or services originating from a different undertaking.
The legal requirements to register a trademark under the Act are:
- The selected mark should be capable of being represented graphically (that is in the paper form).
- It should be capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one undertaking from those of others.
- It should be used or proposed to be used mark in relation to goods or services for the purpose of indicating or so as to indicate a connection in the course of trade between the goods or services and some person have the right to use the mark with or without identity of that person.
