Plato makes it simple.
What is a trademark?
A trademark is like a “symbol” that's used to distinguish your business's products or services from those of your competition. Registering a trademark gives you exclusive rights to use your “symbol”, which could be anything from a word, phrase, number, shape, scent, letter, picture, colour, logo, or any combination of those things.
As an easily recognizable example, Google’s iconic “G” logo is trademarked to distinguish the Google brand.
Why should I register a trademark?
Registering a trademark gives you legal protection
You receive exclusive rights to use the unique “symbol” you've trademarked to your business. If anyone infringes on that right by using the “sign” without your approval, this means you're able to take legal action against them:
Having the exclusive right to use a “symbol” also means that you're able to license the right to someone else, should you choose to do so.
For example, if you trademarked a certain shape, and are approached by another company for the use of that shape, you can license them the right to use it, at a fee.
Further, by registering for a trademark, you ensure that the use of that “symbol” does not infringe on anyone’s rights. This prevents any potential legal consequences from affecting you, even though you may have good intentions.

Before you go through your application process you'll first need:
The "symbol" or logo you would like to trademark
You should ensure that the logo you wish to trademark is suitable for use. It must be unique so that it can differentiate your goods or services from competitors, or it could be rejected.
The products and services for your trademark
You must specify the products and services that your trademark is or will be used for. e.g gloves. There is no limit to the number of goods and services or classes that you can select.
