2. It is possible to register words, mottos, symbols, signs, etc. as trademark, but each brand should have graphic presentation, that is the logo.
3. Verification of uniqueness of the trademark is more formal; it should be uniqualized from the others for the purposes of recognizability, and it is the task of the entrepreneur himself.
