TRADEMARKS

Federal & State Trademarks

If you have invested the time and money into building a successful name and brand, or even if you are just getting started, you need to make sure you are protecting your investment by securing a formal trademark. You can obtain a State registration, but the strongest way to protect your trademark is through a Federal registration, through the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), which provides the following benefits:

  • Trademark protection in all 50 States

  • The right to use the ® or Registered Trademark wording alongside your name or logo

  • Registered trademarks can collect up to triple damages plus attorneys’ fees in a Court proceeding

  • Registered trademarks allow you to more quickly shut down infringers (including domain names)
