Trademark And Copyright Law

Trademarks and copyrights are legal protections for certain types of intellectual property, including inventions, ideas, artistic creations, music and brands.


A trademark consists of any word, name, symbol, figure, letter or device used by a company to identify and distinguish its products from those manufactured or sold by others. To be protectable, a mark must be distinctive. In other words, it must identify the source and distinguish the trademark owner’s goods or services from the goods or services of its competitors. Before adopting and using a new mark, it is advisable to perform or obtain a trademark “search” to determine if there is a mark already in use, registered or subject to a pending application that may conflict with the proposed mark.
