Like any other class of Intellectual Property, there has been a huge misunderstanding and a substantial degree of perplexity by the general public on the question of trademarks and their protection. Repercussions of this have therefore been serious infringements and mishandling of these marks. Due to the immense content pertaining to trademarks, this article shall briefly elaborate to minimal extend what they are, when and how they are protected especially in the context of Lesotho.
Perhaps we should start off by breaking down what copyright is. This will help to do away with any misconceptions that have been held to its definition. Copyright is exactly what it says it is. It is the exclusive right of creators of artistic, literary and scientific works over their creations. The rights to reproduce, make adaptations, rearrange, distribute, perform and publicly communicate their works exclusively without the interference of any third parties.
