What is a Trademark?
A trademark allows businesses to distinguish themselves and their products from the competition. This can include your company name, a slogan, a logo, or even the distinctive way your product is packaged (also known as Trade Dress).
What are the Advantages of Trademark Registration?
Once your trademark is registered, anyone in the United States who uses your trademark is presumed to know that your trademark is registered. Otherwise, they would be able to use your trademark and possibly keep you from expanding your use.
You will also be able to sue those who use your trademark in federal court and may be able to use the registration in disputes over website domain names. You can also file it with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency which can help in stopping importation of infringing goods.
