In the current global market, intellectual property is critical to identifying and differentiating your business. It is imperative that your innovative assets are adequately researched and protected to ensure a solid business foundation and continued success. Through our work with many different businesses and industries, Mullin Rybicki Klopack, PC is well-versed in what is necessary to successfully search for conflicting marks, register a mark and protect the mark after registration.
A trademark is any word, name, symbol or device used in trade with goods to indicate the source of the goods and to distinguish them from the goods of others. A trademark can consist of words, a design or logo, or even a shape, color, sound or smell. Protecting your “mark” can be difficult and expensive to enforce in your trade area, because you bear the burden of proving ownership and validity of your trademark.
