Trademark Registration Benefits Nationalwide

Nationwide Protection
With a federal registered trademark, your name and logo is protected in the entire United States. This is important if you plan to expand the use of your products or services in other states. It also provides notice of ownership of the mark, deterring others from subsequently using a similar mark.

Monetary Compensation
A registered trademark gives you the right to recover an infringement monetary award for triple the amount of actual damages. Trademarks can also be licensed or sold. For example, a business can enjoy substantial revenue in royalties from licensing its trademark. Get your good name trademarked today and you may be able to sell the rights to someone else later!

Trademark Registration Benefits Preventing Legal Disputes
Preventing Disputes
Registered trademark grants you the right to put the ® symbol next to your mark for the goods and services listed in the registration. This gives notice to the public that your mark is already registered, thereby preventing a party from innocently infringing your mark. The registered trademark prevents problems in two ways: (1) It discourages others from using a similar mark in the first place because they will see your trademark in a search result, and (2) the U.S. trademark examining attorney will safeguard your mark by rejecting any similarly confusing trademarks filed in the future.


Other Benefits to Trademark Registration Include:

  • Legal presumption of your ownership of the mark and your exclusive right to use the mark nationwide on or in connection with the goods/services listed in the registration (whereas a state registration only provides rights within the borders of that one state). Your trademark registration is evidence of your priority in the trademark.
  • Public notice of your claim of ownership of the mark. Probably the most important benefit of placing a mark on the Principal Register is that anybody who later initiates use of the same or a confusingly similar trademark may be presumed by the courts to be a "willful infringer" and therefore liable for large money damages.
  • Prevent importation of infringing goods. Having a federal registered trademark gives you the ability to record the U.S. registration with the U.S.Customs and Border Protection Service to prevent importation of infringing foreign goods.
  • Use the federal registration symbol “®”.
  • Ability to bring an action concerning the mark in federal court. Without a federally registered trademark, you are not entitled to sue in federal court to enforce your rights.
  • Foreign Registration. The use of the U.S.registration as a basis to obtain registration in foreign countries.
