In the present paper, we are going to show that outside a slim set in the sense of Malliavin (or quasi-surely), the signature path (which consists of iterated path integrals in every degree) of Brownian motion is non-self-intersecting. This property relates closely to a non-degeneracy property for the Brownian rough path arising naturally from the uniqueness of signature problem in rough path theory. As an important consequence we conclude that quasi-surely, the Brownian rough path does not have any tree-like pieces and every sample path of Brownian motion is uniquely determined by its signature up to reparametrization.
