Attorney Saunders Outlines Trademark Strategies at Women’s SIG

Attorney Saunders Outlines Trademark Strategies at Women’s SIG


At the June 19 Women’s Initiative meeting, attorney Matthew Saunders of Saunders & Silverstein in Amesbury (www.massiplaw.com) conveyed highly relevant information about trademark law.

Saunders reminded us that almost anything that tells the consumer something about the source of the product or service can be a trademark, including a name, phrase, logo, or color (think UPS brown). He pointed out that for trademark purposes, a name that doesn’t directly describe the product or service is stronger. Kodak is a good example.

In the US, trademark protection begins with use, rather than registration. Although it’s a good idea in many cases to register your trademark, federal law protects any trademark being used in interstate business. The longer you’ve been using it, the stronger your claim. Saunders said the registration application process is fairly straightforward, but if trademark issues come up with regard to the application, your company may need an attorney to resolve them.

Reasons to register a trademark include:

  1. Assurance to investors or potential buyers that you’ve protected the company or product name.
  2. Firmer ground on which to “police” any individuals or companies trying to infringe on your product or company name.
  3. Avoiding having to prove “use” in the event of a court case. If your trademark is registered, the burden is on the defendant to prove they are not infringing on your trademark. In all cases, infringement is based on whether or not the consumer might become confused between the companies or products.

The July 17 Women’s Initiative meeting will feature Debra Crosby of Conquest Creative Media talking about “elevator” speeches.

    Tambahkan konten ke blog anda beberapa kali tiap minggu. Berusahalah untuk menjaga jadwal posting reguler, dan dedikasikan diri untuk mematuhinya. Menjalankan hal itu akan memberi pengunjung kalian banyak konten untuk dibaca. Posting yang konsisten akan membuat orang kembali ke situs anda, jika kita membuatnya tetap menarik dan informatif.

  6. Cool article! Amazing tips over here. It’s pretty worth enough for me. From my point of view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before. I couldn’t resist commenting. I have spent 2 hours searching for such informations. I’ll also share it with a couple of friends interested in it. I’ve just bookmarked this website. Right now with the task done, I’ll watch some free live model Webcams. Thanks!! Greetings from Lewisville!

    Pengetahuan anda perihal blogging sekarang harus cukup bagus sampai kita dapat mengawali blog untuk diri sendiri, atau meningkatkan apa yang sudah kita lakukan. kamu ingin membikin blog yang benar-benar menarik atensi kalian, hal terakhir yang berharap kamu lakukan adalah membikin blog dan mengobrol seputar subjek yang tidak kamu minati. Lakukan apa yang kamu suka dan orang-orang akan memperdengarkan karena kita akan memiliki motivasi sejati dalam kata-kata kamu.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
    authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes
    over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  20. Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs?
