A huge advantage when comparing a registered trademark with unregistered goods and services is the protection of the law. When an infringement occurs, the trademark owner can personally request a state agency to handle the violation based on the protection title. As for products that have not been trademarked, it will take more time to prove who has the rights and who is infringing. Therefore, when trading toy products, business entities should register toy product trademark in Vietnam and in the target market to protect their reputation.
