FAQ

What is a trademark?

 

Trademarks date back to the Roman era when blacksmiths and brick makers would stamp their work to identify the source of their products. Today, you can register your brand identifiers with the U.S. Government to obtain a protected trademark that distinguishes you from your competitors.

Do I need to register a trademark?

 

If you have come up with a name, logo, or slogan that you want to keep others from using, you should probably register a trademark. Even colors, smells, and sounds can be trademarked if you use them as a unique identifier for your product or service.

Can I file my own trademark?

 

You can file your own trademark but it is like cutting your own hair. When you hire a professional, you take advantage of their experience, training, tools, and perspective.

This is why studies show that by using experienced attorneys to file your trademark you can increase your odds of success by as much as 50%!
