More on "What is a Trademark?" and the Race to Register!

  • RACE TO REGISTER.  First come, first serve, is the policy with trademarks. Whoever registers or uses a mark in commerce first, has the exclusive rights to that mark for the purpose(s) or in the industry.
  • Federal and State law govern trademarks.
  • The laws derive from the principle that a merchant has an inherent right to the exclusive use of those marks which distinguish its goods or services.
  • Registration provides the presumption that the owner of the registration has exclusive rights to use the mark in commerce for a particular purpose. Such a presumption is challenging and costly to overcome.
  • In addition, trademark rights may also be registered based on "intent to use," if you intend to start using the mark in commerce after the Trademark Application is filed.
