What Is A Trademark?
- A trademark is a form of protection used to brand or promote a product being offered in the market place in the form of a word, name, phrase, tag-line (Standard Text Characters) or symbol, graphic, color (Stylized and/or Design) or a combination of both. Moreover, trademarks are used to identify and distinguish the products and services of one seller from those of others. In addition, to indicate the source of the product or services.
- A Federal trademark is filed with the USPTO and provides protection in all 50 states. Moreover, to file for a federal trademark application the owner must be currently using or intending to use the mark in commerce (marketing & selling) across state lines (in more than one state).

Moreover, any distinguishing attribute, such as the well-known characteristics of celebrities may be protected.
