Trademark Registration


A trademark  is a sign, design, expression, graphics, logo, symbols, words, or any combination thereof that uniquely identifies a firm and/or its goods or services, guarantees  the item's genuineness, and gives it owner the legal rights to prevent the trademark's unauthorized use.  The trademark owner can be an individual, business organization, or any legal entity. A trademark may be located on a package, a label, a voucher, or on the product itself. For the sake of corporate identity trademarks are being displayed on company buildings. Trademarks are used to identify services are usually called as service marks.

Types of Trademarks:

There are mainly three types of trademarks and understanding these types of trademarks is essential to understanding trademark registration:
  • Unregistered trademark -This type of mark is typically seen in the promotion or branding of goods. It is typically identified by the appearance of a small uppercase T side by side with an uppercase M.
  • Unregistered service mark-This is a mark used in the promotion or branding of services. It is identified by the small appearance of an uppercase S side by side with an uppercase M.
  • Registered trademark - Owners of registered trademarks are able to file suit against anyone who infringes upon the use of their trademarks. It is represented by an uppercase R encased in a circle.

Benefits:

Trademark registration is not required, as the right or ownership of a mark is established by the legitimate use of the mark. But registration is recommended to give one additional protection. The main benefits of a registered trademark are:
  • National scope and protection to the mark and its usage
  • Grants the right to use the symbol that may deter potential infringements
  • Acts as a public notice and offers a legal presumption on the ownership as well as the exclusive rights to use the mark
  • Gives the right to sue for infringement in federal courts
