Patents: The company today has a strong and extensive portfolio of patent families, with patents granted in all parts of the world, including the United States. The company has been granted 21 patents to date, and a further 47 applications are pending. The granted patents are principally 'compositions', meaning that they cover our formulations. This also provides us with strong and important protection, because it means that no one else is allowed to make the same product. Smartfish works systematically on research and development, and has done so for many years. Patenting is regarded as an important and necessary part of this work, and is confirmation that what we do has innovative merit and yields surprising results.
Trademarks: Smartfish today has rights to three trademarks registered in countries around the world. There are currently 50 approvals/registrations for these. The trademarks are used on the commercial products Smartfish has on the market. Trademark registration is an ongoing process for Smartfish, as we are always looking to achieve protection for relevant brands.
