What is a Trademark? A United States trademark is a word, phrase, or logo that identifies the source of goods or services. Trademark law protects a business' commercial identity or brand by discouraging other businesses from adopting a name or logo that is “confusingly similar” to an existing trademark.
A trademark is an intellectual property right that aims to protect a brand’s rights in its logo, or however it conveys its brand. This means trademark is a property right that protects intangible property, or property that doesn’t exist in the physical world. An example of physical property is a car. Intellectual property, on the other hand is the Ford logo. Trademark laws protect a business owners’ exclusive right to use unique trademarks which is important to establishing their brand.
