Dev was a brilliant student, but unfortunately, he lost his parents in a car accident. He and his younger brother have no one to help. One of his friends suggested starting his coaching to get money for their living affairs. Dev did so.
He started his coaching in the name of his mother, “Vagisha”, and at a very early stage, he got popular for his coaching. Many students from long distances came to join his institute. He started his coaching at his home.
But after a few days, he saw one more coaching center had started just in front of his home with the same name, “Vagisha Institute of knowledge”, and he was shocked. He went there to talk with the owner of the institute.
He said he could use this as he registered this name and logo. Now it's the Trademark of his coaching. He also warned Dev to change his name and logo because he used the same Trademark and logo to be registered.
Dev was very upset as he had no more money to commercialize his coaching. And the opposite party had invested a lot. Students were also confused, and they generally moved toward the new one.
So Dev changed the name of his coaching. No one knows the actual reason, and everyone admitted to the new “Vagisha Institute of knowledge”. Dev suffered a lot because he did not know trademark registration.
Although he tried his best and finally renamed its institute after trademark registration. Having so much subjective knowledge is not enough for Dev to continue his coaching. He should also follow all the business tact.
