Trademark vs. Trade Name

  • 7 min read

What is Trademark vs. Trade Name?

A trademark offers legal protection for a symbol, logo, slogan, phrase, word, design, or other element that associates products or services with your business. A trade name is your company's official name under which it does business. Other terms for trade name include "doing business name", "fictitious name", or "assumed name."

Registering your company's trade name is much simpler than registering for a trademark but doesn't offer the same legal protection. It only serves as the official name of your company.

When you receive approval on a trademark application, you hold several legal rights. You are the only one allowed to use, copy, profit from, and distribute the approved mark. This could include a variety of items, from a simple logo t
