How Can Trademarks Secure Your Market Advantages?
Trademarks and other business marks are types of intellectual property that can help businesses distinguish themselves in the marketplace. They’re a matter of branding. Trademarks may apply to visual symbols, words, designs, or countless combinations of these elements. They can distinguish goods and services from those of other companies within the same industry. The basic purpose of trademarks is to encourage association between the business mark’s owner and their products and services for customers or clients. However, trademarks also accomplish so much more. They obtain value themselves and can even become the most profitable assets of a business.
Service marks are similar to trademarks, yet they are used to differentiate services rather than products. Trade dress, on the other hand, refers to how a product is presented or packaged. These business marks serve as a signifier that consumers associate with particular companies and indicate delivery and execution information about their products or services. Together with copyrights and patents, they protect businesses against infringement by competitors who may try to replicate their design, branding, innovations, and services.
The Trademark Application Process
Establishing a trademark requires filing an application with the USPTO. This application must include relevant information, such as a detailed description of the mark itself, what it looks like when used commercially, its purpose for use by the applicant, and its intended commercial impact on consumers. Prior research and thorough preparation is key to successful trademark applications. Our Calabasas-based trademark lawyers place an emphasis on researching potential business marks for any conflicts before filing a trademark application. This way, we can mitigate any issues for our clients prior to investing resources into the mark.
