What is a Trademark?
By definition, a trademark includes, "Any word, name, symbol, slogan, or any combination used, or intended to be used, in commerce to identify and distinguish the goods of one manufacturer or seller from
goods manufactured or sold by others, and to indicate the source of the goods." The importance of securing a trademark is monumental when you consider that it is the single greatest protection for
your brand that you can achieve. If you have ever created a company that you built from the ground up, you can appreciate the amount of time and effort that goes into that process. Considering the
