The protection of your company name
Your company name is not protected by registering your company name by the Chamber of Commerce. This registration does not offer you any legal basis to be able to take action against other parties.
It is important that you have trade name rights, for which you had to use the name for a while and have acquired a certain reputation. The trade name right therefore only offers regional protection.
It is better to protect your company name through a trademark registration. You then have direct protection throughout the Benelux. Also, in the case of a follow-up / merger / acquisition or transfer of your company it is better to have the company name registered as a trademark.
