There are many ways to protect your business. One of the most popular and fastest is registering a trademark with the DPMA. When registering, however, there is a lot to consider. Thus, effective brand protection can only be achieved if the right classes are registered. When choosing the so-called Nice classes, extreme care must be exercised, as they decisively decide on the future trademark protection of the registered trademark.
