A trademark is a special sign that shows your products or services are uniquely yours and not from other companies. It can be your business name, product name, a unique phrase, logo, symbol, or design. To really protect your trademark from anyone who tries to copy it, you should register and use it in your business.

Registering a trademark might seem complicated, but it essentially involves applying to organizations like the USPTO or your state’s trademark office. Once you’ve registered your trademark, it means others are not allowed to use your business name, brand name, phrase, logo, symbol, or design. It’s a legal way to make sure your brand stays unique.

Registering a trademark involves a few steps:


  1. Search: First, you need to make sure no one else is already using a similar name, logo, or slogan. You can do this by searching online and in the trademark databases of USPTO and your state (if applicable).
  2. Prepare: Next, prepare your application. This involves gathering necessary information like your name, address, the exact mark you want to register, a sample showing how you’re using the mark, and the date you first used it.
  3. Apply: Then, submit your application with the required fees. You can do this online through the USPTO’s website or your state’s trademark office.
  4. Wait: After submitting, you’ll need to wait for the review process. If everything’s fine, your trademark will be registered. If there are any issues, you’ll be contacted to make changes.


Remember, the process can be complex and it might be helpful to get professional help to ensure it’s done right.

From a business perspective, a trademark and a copyright serve different purposes.

A trademark protects your brand identity in the market. It covers things like your company name, logo, or tagline. For example, the McDonald’s golden arches or the name ‘Nike’ are trademarks. These protect your brand from competitors who might try to use similar signs that could confuse customers.

On the other hand, a copyright protects original creative works that your business might produce. This could include things like advertising copy, user manuals, website content, promotional videos, software, or design schematics. A copyright prevents others from using, copying, or selling these works without your permission. For example, if your company writes a unique software program, you would copyright it to prevent others from using or selling it without your consent.

You’ll need to provide some key details:

  • The exact mark or sign you want to register.
  • The legal name and address of the person or company that owns the mark.
  • A sample that shows how you’re using the mark in your business, like a product photo or a screenshot of your website.
  • The date you started using the mark in your business and the date you first showed the mark to the public.

A federal trademark gives you protection all across the country, while a state trademark protects your brand only within the state where you register it.

You should consider a federal trademark if you’re doing business or planning to do business in more than one state or online. This ensures no one else in the U.S. can use your trademark. However, it is more expensive and requires a longer, more complex application process.

On the other hand, if your business operates only within one state, and there’s no plan to expand beyond, a state trademark could be enough. This gives you exclusive rights to use your trademark within that state. A state trademark is quicker and less expensive to obtain, making it ideal for smaller businesses operating only in one state. But its protection only applies within that specific state

Remember to research thoroughly before deciding as each option has its own benefits and limitations depending on your business situation.

A specimen is a real-life example showing how you’re using your trademark in your business. For products, it could be a photo of the label, tag, or packaging with your trademark on it. For services, it might be brochures, flyers, or ads that display your trademark. Think of it as proof that you’re really using your trademark in your business. You need to provide a specimen when you apply for a trademark.

Yes, you can! You can file an “Intent-To-Use” application. This is a way of saying, “I’m not using this trademark right now, but I plan to use it soon.” You can do this to protect your brand name or logo even before you start selling anything.


After your application is accepted, you’ll get a Notice of Allowance (NOA). This means you have six months to either start using your trademark in your business and show them proof, or ask for more time.


If you need more time, you can ask for an extension. You can do this up to five times, and each time gives you another six months. So, in total, you could have three years from when you get the NOA to when you need to show you’re using the trademark.
