Why file a Trademark?

A trademark is a recognizable sign, design or expression which identifies products or services of a particular source from those of others.

Registering a trademark ensures that no one else can use the same mark in the same industry. To register a trademark you must file an application with the US Trademark and Patent Office, pay a $325 government fee and provide proof of usage, or intended usage.

A registered trademark has the legal protection of law necessary to defend it.

Here are some things that can be trademarked:

  • Name - You can trademark a company name such as 'Apple', 'Microsoft' or 'Fast Cars'
  • Slogan - You can trademark a slogan such as Just do it or i'm lovin it
  • Logo - You can trademark a specific logo or design pattern.
  • Sound - You can trademark a specific sound.

You can file a trademark yourself directly with the USPTO, or you can use a trademark filing and monitoring service like Trademark247 to simplify the process. The trademark filing process is not very user intuitive, so most companies and individuals file with a trademark filing service or use an attorney.

It's important to note that a trademark is not the same thing as a copyright or patent.

We are not associated with Apple®, Microsoft® or any other company or trademark mentioned in the above examples.

Copyrights and Patents

It's important to note that a trademark is not the same thing as a copyright or patent.

A trademark protects the name (or slogan or sound) of a company and prevents others from using the same name in the same industry.

A copyright protects authors from having their works (such as books, music, photos and software) copied and republished.

A patent is a grant on a specific invention by the government giving the inventor exclusivity to use and license it.
