Branding your business and protecting your intellectual property in your merchandise, such as unique product names, logos, and textbooks, are important for the success of your business.
A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or design, or a combination thereof that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. A service mark is the same as a trademark, except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than a product. Without appropriate protection for your trademark or service mark, you may be forced to rebrand your product or service, costing more than the expenses you might have needed to take measures to protect your mark, or you may face difficulties in enforcing your rights in your mark when your competitors use similar marks to yours.
Copyright protects original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression. Copyright registration with the United States Copyright Office in a timely manner is likely to provide you with strong legal protection as compared to delayed registration or no registration at all.
