Trademark Basics

Trademark Basics

I thought a blog post on the basics of trademark law might be helpful to some of my clients. I’ll provide a brief overview of what a trademark covers, the benefits of federal registration with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and how long a trademark registration will remain valid after it is granted. Please keep in mind that these are all general descriptions and your particular circumstances may merit additional considerations. Speaking with me (or another attorney experienced in trademark matters) to discuss protecting your intellectual property is highly recommended.
