Trademark Law: What Is It?

Trademark law is the set of laws and legal regulations that are set up to protect trademarks.

A trademark is a legal protection given to any word, name, symbol, or design that is used in commerce to identify the product of one manufacturer from another.

For example, the Nike Swoosh is a trademark that distinguishes it from other sports companies such as Reebok and Adidas. "Coca-Cola" is also a trademark that distinguishes the soda from other soda companies such as Pepsi.

All brands are entitled to trademark their brand and logo, as long as that mark isn't already in use by another company.

A trademark is also known as a service mark, collective mark, certification mark, or trade name.

Trademarks aren't simply words and phrases anymore. The laws protecting trademarks or the trademark law has been extended to protect other parts of a company

What is Trademark vs. Trade Dress?

A trademark offers legal protection for a logo, symbol, phrase, word, name, or design used to show the manufacturer of a product. Trade dress protects all elements used to promote a specific service or product. Examples of trade dress include packaging and the atmosphere or décor within a place of business.

The term "trade dress" comes from a 1992 court ruling and refers to the way a product is "dressed" to go to market. Since then, the term has expanded to include other elements, such as specific themes used in decoration or styling of a business location. The updated definition focuses on the total image instead of the way a product is "dressed up."

What Is an Information Disclosure Statement?

An information disclosure statement (IDS) describes all prior art or related technology claimed in a patent application. It places the burden of disclosure on the inventor or applicant. If an application doesn't have this statement or fails to include key prior art, any issued patent may become invalid or considered fraudulent.

Information Disclosure Statement: What Is It?

Patent applicants have a responsibility to complete an IDS, which references:

  • all prior art, or patents
  • patent applications, and
  • publications related to an invention.

Because inventors are more likely to be aware of existing patents or related technology than a patent examiner would be, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) requires applicants to disclose all prio

What is Trademark vs. Logo?

A trademark protects a slogan, phrase, word, company name, logo, or design that identifies a company and/or its goods. A logo is a symbol or design used by a company that may fall under trademark protection laws. Many businesses choose to apply for trademark protection on their logos. When approved, a trademark restricts others from using an exact or similar mark.

In order to qualify for legal protection, a trademark must be unique. Prior to filing an application, the designer or business owner should conduct a thorough search of the existing trademark registration databas

How to Patent an App

  • 7 min read

What Is an App Patent?

A patent is protection given by the government to prevent others from using something you invented. You can patent an app through the same process that you patent a piece of software. The key to getting an app patented is to focus on the technical processes of the app such as:

  • Processes that happen on the mobile device itself
  • Processes that happen between the mobile device and the server
  • Processes that happen within the server
  • Processes that happen between mobile devices, helped by the app

If your app does something in a way it has never been done before, you may have the basis for a patent claim.

Why Is It Important To Patent an App?

While protecting your app may sound good, there are some questions to consider:

  • Would a patent add value to your app?
  • Given the amount of time and money it takes to patent an app, does it make sense
