Trademarks protect a word, name, symbol, device or combination of any number of the four.  It is for the use or intended use in commerce, such as a logo; it identifies and distinguishes goods or services, or to indicate the source of the goods in a free market. 

 

TRADEMARKS


A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or design, or a combination of words, phrases, symbols or designs, that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others.

A service mark is the same as a trademark, except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than a product. Throughout this booklet, the terms "trademark" and "mark" refer to both trademarks and service marks.

How does a trademark differ from a Copyright?

Trademarks, copyrights and patents all differ. A trademark distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others; a copyright protects an original artistic or literary work; a patent protects an invention.

Why use an Attorney?

An experienced Trademark Attorney can assist you in the effective selection, management, protection and enforcement of trademarks or service marks for both the US and abroad.  An Experienced trademark attorney can save you time, money and can often times mean the difference between having your trademark application accepted or rejected by the USPTO. The reality is that filing an application for trademark registration is something that anyone can do for themselves.  However, failure to properly file and prosecute a trademark application may result in its refusal or improper registration.  Since a trademark is a valuable asset, it is prudent to have a knowledgeable trademark attorney guide you throughout the trademark process to maximize your investment.
