A Crash Course in Trademarks
Trademarks, managed by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), protect the registered part of your brand against use by other organizations. Other companies in your industry cannot use any of the following once they have trademark status:
After approval, your trademark is good for ten years. If your company is still making use of the mark after five years, you can renew it.
Trademarks are similar to service marks, which protect the branding associated with a service instead of a good, while copyright protects works of authorship.
What Do You Gain by Trademarking Your Brand?
Registering a trademark is not mandatory, but it is a standard business practice for a good reason—893,760 businesses registered trademarks in 2019.
Trademark protection law provides grounds to sue another entity for using a part of your registered brand without authorization. Competitors infringing on your trademark are liable for legal consequences. That is why valuable brands should be trademarked.
