What are Classes?23-05-10
When protecting trademarks, an applicant has to decide what specific goods and services the mark will be applied to. These goods and services have been grouped into 45 classes based on the Nice Agreement. The international classification of goods and services for trademarks is composed of 45 classes. Classes 1 to 34 relate to goods, and classes 35 to 45 apply to services. Trademark classification serves two functions: it provides a guideline for registering trademarks, and it can help you identify potential trademark infringers. When you file your trademark application, you must select the type of goods or services your trademark will protect and identify the goods or services you provide. Your brand will only secure the goods, services, and classes that you name in your application.
