Before you apply for a trademark, you should familiarize yourself with the basics. You can Request a Counseling Session to Determine if you need a trademark or another form of Intellectual Property protection.
The truth is, not every business or idea needs or requires trademark protection.
Trademarks, patents, copyrights, domain names, and business name registrations all differ.
A trademark is a brand used on goods and services. A patent typically protects inventions, like new engines and solar panels. A copyright typically protects original artistic and literary works, like songs and movies and books.
Although trademarks, patents, and copyrights can all be used together, the protections they provide are not the same.
They're all equally important and protect different parts of your intellectual property portfolio.
