Get Your Trademark Registration Right The First Time
One of the most important tasks of business owners is to devise, legitimize and protect trademarks – the words and images by which the business will be known. Of course, it is possible to change trademarks later, but change is nearly always risky and costly. Getting a well-chosen trademark in place from the start can save you trouble and set the stage for success.
There are a number of ways to protect the name and logos used by your business. These include protecting the name of your products and services as well as the actual name of your business itself. For guidance in protecting your Arizona business’s trademarks, turn to Keith Miller Patent Law, a well-established intellectual property (IP) law firm in Goodyear.
About Trademark Protection: Rationale And Methods
Besides logos, trademarks include names of businesses and products. A business or product name has value. You work hard to build a good reputation for your business and products. If someone else uses the name that you have worked hard to build, they will be exploiting the reputation and goodwill you have developed. Don’t let someone else benefit unfairly from your hard work – protect your business and product names today.
Specific ways to protect logos, business names and product names – all of which are types of trademarks – include:
- Registering your business identity with the state
- Filing to obtain a state trademark
- Filing to obtain a federal trademark
- Filing to obtain a foreign trademark
- Working with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) regarding your business’s domain names
