Trademarks play a crucial role in safeguarding specific forms of intellectual property by preventing unauthorized entities from capitalizing on your distinctive brand. The scope of trademark law extends to symbols, words, designs, phrases, names, and logos, among others. By registering your trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, you can ensure its protection against unauthorized usage for ten years, which can be further renewed.
Establishing a trusted brand not only enhances your credibility but also instills consumer confidence in your products or services. Trademark law serves as a deterrent against unfair competition by safeguarding the unique features of your brand.
While registering your trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is not mandatory, it can fortify your defense against infringement, thereby mitigating potential losses.
• Registration provides the registrant with legal presumption of ownership nationwide
• Registration grants exclusive ownership to the registrant to use the trademark in connection with the goods and services he or she provides
•The registrant may sue for infringement and put a stop to infringing items
