How do I register and protect my trademarks?

The person who first registered it, has the right to use a trademark. Therefore, if you want to protect your trademark, you will have to register it in time with the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP). This offers you protection in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. If you are also active outside the Benelux, you can expand your protection by registering the trademark in the EU or internationally. For registering a trademark it is required that your name or logo is distinctive. In addition, BOIP can refuse registration if the trademark is misleading, contrary to public order or violates principles of morality.
