What is the Smart Trade Mark about?

· We’ve launched a ‘Trust Badge’ on our online Raiders merchandise store to identify our website as a register reseller of NRL products. The idea behind the Trust Badge is to help customers recognise our store as a retailer of genuine NRL merchandise – as we all know it can be difficult to spot knock-off counterfeit products online.

· You can see the Trust Badge at the bottom of the page in our Raiders store, as visual proof of the NRL’s registered trade mark.

· The Trust Badge is part of a government initiative called Smart Trade Mark, which aims to modernise trade marks, helping brands like the NRL to better protect themselves against counterfeit goods online.

· The Smart Trade Mark platform allows trade mark owners to connect digitally to the government register to prove they are the authentic owner of a brand.

· Smart Trade Mark uses blockchain technology and APIs to connect information about the trade mark, such as who the owner is and where it has been used digitally - enabling the trade mark owner to control the use of their trade marks and prove a product’s origin.

· The Trust Badge was first launched on the NRL shop earlier this year, where it helps consumers verify that the website is a retailer of genuine NRL merchandise.

· Further information is available on the Smart Trade Mark website: https://smarttrademark.search.ipaustralia.gov.au/
