What Are the Advantages of Trademark Registration?
A trademark is any word, name, symbol or device used to identify the source
of the goods or services and to distinguish them from the goods or services
of others. A trademark can consist of words, a design or logo, or even
a shape, color, sound, or smell. Protecting your “mark” is
essential in creating a recognizable and distinguishable brand identity.
Registering your trademark provides several advantages, including:
- Presumption of exclusive ownership rights throughout the United States;
- The right to use the federal registration symbol, “®”;
- Registration becomes incontestable after five years;
- Basis for registration in foreign countries;
- The right to prevent importation of infringing foreign goods;
- The right to sue in federal court; and
- The right to recover your attorneys’ fees.
