Do You Need A Copyright Or A Trademark?

Many people use these terms interchangeably, even though they have very distinct meanings. A copyright gives you the sole legal authority to reproduce, sell or distribute an original work of art, song, book, software program or other creation.

A trademark, on the other hand, is used to identify your company as a particular seller of goods. It can be a phrase, logo, word or another design that allows consumers to recognize your company as the source of the product.

Extensive Experience With Applications And Registration

Over the past 25 years of practice, founding attorney William Barth has assisted numerous clients with trademark registration and related business law matters. He understands the nuances of intellectual property rights, especially when it comes to meeting the strict deadlines and detailed requirements of the USPTO.
