ABSTRACT
The article presents information on trademark law and the need of distinctiveness in the usage of trade marks. The trade marks are protected under the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) of the World Trade Organization (WTO). The preferential trade agreements adopt standards for protecting intellectual property rights. A focus is on the market powers in trademarks, monopolization and antitrust law and the theory related to law and economics of trademarks.
