How Do I Get a Patent?

To get a patent, you need to make sure your idea is patentable, which requires that your invention is fully developed and that no one else has already patented it, and then file an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) which can be a complex process depending on patent type (utility, design, plant, or software patent).

What is a Trademark?

A trademark helps protect a symbol, logo, phrase, domain name, design, or word that's associated with your product or business name. A trademark is different from a patent because it doesn't protect an actual product or design on a product. The trademark prevents other companies from using your logo, design, phrase, symbol, domain name, or word as their own.

How Do I File a Trademark?

  1. Finalize the design

The first step in the process of trademarking is deciding on your idea. If you have several logos, symbols, or words, decide on the one you like best. You should keep the others as backups, in case your top choice isn't eligible for a trademark.

As you finalize your design, think about a few importan

What is Trademark vs. Registered?

The trademark symbol (TM) is a mark that companies often use on a logo, name, phrase, word, or design that represents the business. The registered symbol (R) represents a mark that is a registered trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Some people think you can use the two interchangeably, but this is not the case. The TM symbol actually has no legal meaning. You can use the symbol on any mark that your company uses without registering it.

The most common use of the TM symbol is on a new phrase, logo, word, or design t

Opposition Proceeding

  • 5 min read

What Is an Opposition Proceeding?

An opposition procedure is a tool that companies can use when their trademark, brand, logo, or patent, typically utility patents, is under attack. If another brand or competitor applies to use a similar mark, the company can file an opposition to deny the application.

When to File an Opposition Procedure

A company might file an opposition because the company in question is in the same industry and the company could lose business because of confusion. However, it can also file a complaint if the mark is used in a different industry – as long as the company can prove that it would lose money because of the competing mark.

The opposition procedure starts after the trademark application has been reviewed. It lasts for 30 days and provides a window for anyone to oppose the approval of a trademark.

Anyone with "legitimate" int
