WHAT IS TRADEMARK?
A trademark is a word, phrase, or logo that identifies the source of goods or services. Trademark law protects a business' commercial identity or brand by discouraging other businesses from adopting a name or logo that is "confusingly similar" to an existing trademark. The goal is to allow consumers to easily identify the producers of goods and services and avoid confusion.
In the U.S, trademarks and patents are registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO"). Few of the benefits of having a mark on the Principle Register with the USPTO are as follows:
• The ability to sue in the U.S. federal court
• Public notice and a legal presumption of your ownership and exclusive right to use the mark throughout the U.S.
• Using the U.S. registration as a basis to obtain registration in foreign countries.
• The ability to use the U.S. registration with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Service to prevent importation into the U.S. of infringing foreign goods.
