Should I register my trademark?
Are you wondering if your business is big enough to benefit from the protection of Trademark Registration?
If you are investing your time and money in your business, the answer is likely, yes. Most businesses that I represent benefit from Trademark Registration, because it protects their investment of time and money.
Before using a trademark, you should know if the trademark is available for your use. If not, you could waste valuable time and money using the trademark, only to find out someone else has exclusive rights to use it. In addition, you likely benefit from obtaining trademark registration, to protect your trademark from use by others in your industry or trade.
*Analogy: It’s like investing in a piece of real estate without checking to see who owns it first, and then obtaining a deed in your name, but not registering/filing the deed with the Registry. If someone else claims rights to that property later, and their deed is filed before your deed, you can imagine that it will be very difficult and costly to resolve the situation.
