Green Pin® and EXCEL®, registered trade marks


A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or combination identifying a product or service in the marketplace. This covers logos, marketing slogans, brand and trade names. In some circumstances, the trademark can cover colors or smells. Registered trademarks are trademarks granted additional legitimacy by the appropriate government agency. These registrations can be used to stop others using identical or similar marketing slogans, logos, brand and trade names.
