When You Should Think about Getting a Trademark

What is a trademark?

A trademark is any recognizable design or expression that identifies your business as the source of its products or services in the minds of consumers. A trademark can be owned by any individual, legal entity, or most commonly, business organization. Trademarks can typically found on packages, labels, products themselves, advertisements, building facades, or any other item that represent a reproducible and intentionally identifiable, good from your organization.

What’s the Difference Between a Trademark and a Copyright?

Trademarks are designed to protect the intangible property owned by your business that consumers associate with your brand and company. This can include titles, phrases, symbols, visual designs, unique typography, logos, or slogans. Copyrights are meant to protect works like paintings or books, whose value would be seriously impacted by mass reproduction.

As an example if you want to protect your newly named company, memorable logo, and flagship products slogan you need a Trademark. If you want to protect the name and associated catchphrase of your latest SAAS venture you would need a Trademark. To protect a movie, eBook, or novel you’ve been working on, you’d need a copyright.

Generally a Trademark appears on goods or their packaging, while a service mark can appear inside a program, site, or advertising for a service.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1453962267188{margin-bottom: 33px !important;padding-top: 47px !important;padding-bottom: 60px !important;background-image: url(http://aadibi.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/placeholder.gif?id=593) !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}” el_class=”overlay_4 fixed_bg”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Why Work With Amir?” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center|color:%23ffffff” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1459483656245{margin-bottom: 40px !important;}”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][stm_info_box align_center=”yes” style=”style_2″ icon=”fa fa-chevron-right” title=”Focused On Your Goals” link=”url:%2Fcontact-us-2%2F||” css=”.vc_custom_1459483813446{padding-top: 10px !important;padding-right: 50px !important;padding-bottom: 36px !important;padding-left: 50px !important;}”]I make recommendations based purely off of what I believe is best for your business goals and patent portfolio, and leave the decision making up to you. Ultimately, legal work requires time, effort, and resources, but everyone has a budget.

Trademark Laws

Each state has their own set of laws that are distinct from the federal laws which regulate trademarks.

If a trademark is not federally registered then you may not use the Registration symbol ® and instead have to use either ™ for Trademark or ℠ for service mark.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
