Trademarks

Trademarks are a common type of intellectual property, used by virtually every business. Trademarks are those names or symbols that identify a company as the source of a product or service. Originally, trademarks were literally the marks tradesmen imprinted on their goods to indicate who made them.

Before adopting a trademark, you should invest in a trademark search to identify potentially competing claims to the mark. Rights in trademarks are generally based on priority of use. The few hundred dollars you spend on a search will be worth every cent if the expenditure saves you from having to change a name or a mark down the road.
