Trademarks



Trademarks are forms of intellectual property that protect identifying marks that distinguish goods or services. To be a trademark, the mark must be identified in the minds of consumers with a particular source of a good or service. Trademarks come in different levels of protection or "strengths," including generic marks, descriptive marks, suggestive marks, and arbitrary or fanciful marks. Please read on to find a trademark attorney, lawyer, trademark information, or to learn more about trademark law.
