What are Types of Trademarks?

A trademark offers legal protection for a word, symbol, phrase, logo, design, or combination of those that represents a source of goods or services. Types of trademarks for products include five main categories: generic mark, descriptive mark, suggestive mark, fanciful, and arbitrary mark. 

  • Generic Mark
    • A generic trademark actually doesn't qualify for a trademark unless it includes more specific detail. One example of a generic mark is the phrase, "The Ice Cream Shop." Offering trademark protection on something this generic would restrict all other shops that sell ice cream.
    • To qualify a generic mark for a trademark, it needs to describe qualities, characteristics, or ingredients of the good your bu

A trademark infringement defense is the legal case brought by a defendant to prove they did not infringe on someone else's (the plaintiff's) trademark. Basically, trademark infringement is the unauthorized use of a trademark or service mark on goods or services that compete or are related. Whether or not a claim is successful is transferred to the defendant and depends on whether his or her use was likely to cause confusion to the average consumer, thereby weakening the plaintiff's image. It's important to note that infringement doesn't need to be an exact replica or copy, just similar enough to confuse the average consumer. This is espe

What is a patent citation search?

A patent citation search is a patent search of the titles that legally protect inventions from infringement and describe in detail how these inventions look and work based on the references they provide.

What Is Intellectual Property?

Intellectual property (or IP) is an intangible creation that a person or business owns. The law gives the owner rights and privileges over the creation. These rights protect the owner, stopping others from using the creation without permission. This protection lasts for up to 20 years from the date of the patent application.
