Therefore, the name, logo, emblem, label or other distinctive features of a person's goods or services can be protected by a trade mark.
A national application for registration may be filed by any natural or legal person, now and via the internet, using the e-application service (registration) of the mark itself or through an industrial property agent, while foreign nationals do so only through an agent.

With the e-Fee system, taxpayers can pay prescribed fees and charges, instead of state stamps or payment slip, faster and simpler through their bank cards (for a current account, giro account or credit card) such as Visa, Maestro, MasterCard and Diners.
