What is Trademark?

A trademark is a word, a group of words, sign, symbol, logo or a combination thereof that identifies and differentiates the source of the goods or services of one entity from those of others. If you’re a business, distinguishing your goods or services from others gives you a competitive edge. Learn more about trademarks, how to apply for protection, and how to manage them.

Here are some tips for conducting a trademark search:
** Be as specific as possible in your search criteria.
** Use different variations of your trademark name in your search.
** Check the Nice classification and Vienna code to make sure that you are searching in the correct categories.
** Review the search results carefully to identify any potential conflicts with existing trademarks.

If you have any questions about conducting a trademark search, you can consult with a trademark attorney.
