A trademark or service mark includes any word, name, symbol, device, or any combination, used or intended to be used to identify and distinguish the goods/services of one seller or provider from those of others, and to indicate the source of the goods/services.
Although federal registration of a mark is not mandatory, it has several advantages, including notice to the public of the registrant’s claim of ownership of the mark, legal presumption of ownership nationwide, and exclusive right to use the mark on or in connection with the goods/services listed in the registration.
It’s extremely important to obtain trademark protection. Trademarks can be applied to the name of your company, your company’s logo, the name of a product or service and much more. Business owners can obtain trademarks at the federal and state level; this type of protection prevents others from stealing the goodwill associated with your company, service or product’s name!
Obtaining a trademark can take months at the federal level, and there are numerous pitfalls to avoid in order to ensure that your proposed mark will obtain trademark protection. Call Half Price Lawyers For Business today to see how we can help!
A copyright protects a literary, musical, dramatic, choreographic, pictoral or graphic, audiovisual, or architectural work, or a sound recording, from being reproduced without the permission of the copyright owner. Subject to certain limitations, the owner of a copyright has the sole right to authorize reproduction of the work, creation of a work derived from the work, distribution of copies of the work, or public performance or display of the work.

The right conferred by the patent grant is, in the language of the statute and of the grant itself, “the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling” the invention in the United States or “importing” the invention into the United States. What is granted is not the right to make, use, offer for sale, sell or import, but the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, selling or importing the invention.
