What is a Trademark and What is a Copyright?

A trademark and a copyright are both types of intellectual property protection that afford a way to defend against unauthorized use. While trademarks and copyrights both relate to intellectual property, each protects a different type of asset. Trademark and copyright registrations and the associated laws vary internationally. For this article, all information is for the United States unless specifically noted otherwise.

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 business

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."

State Trademark

  • 13 min read

Trademark Overview

A state trademark allows a business to register its mark at the state level only, so long as the mark will only be used within one state. It does not provide the same level of protection as a federal trademark.

What Is a State Trademark?

Trademarks offer the owner protections against the unauthorized use of any symbol, words, phrases, or identifying elements of a business that are unique and specific to your brand identity. There are two ways to file for trademark protection in the United States. The most well-known of these is to register a federal trademark under the Lanham Act. This provides protection over a mark not just throughout the United States but across all its possessions and territories.

A state registration, on the other hand, provides protection for a mark within the borders of the state in which it's registered. Each state can vary in
