Trademarks Require a Special Registration Drawing
Many people wonder about trademarks. What are they and how do I use them?
A TM may be a word, symbol, design or combination word and design, a slogan
or even a distinctive sound which identifies and distinguishes the goods or services of
one party from thoughs of another. It can even be the shape of the product it-self. Used to identify a service, it can be called a service
mark. In general, the term refers to both TMs and Service Marks. For
the most part, a TM for goods appears on the product or on its packaging. while
a service mark is usually used in advertising to identify the owner's services.
Have you ever thought about... what is the difference between a patent and a TM?
A patent gives protection for an invention. A patent provides a tool to enforce a monopoly
on its utilitarian function. A TM is different. A TM is a form of identification, a
brand name. TMs are very useful in combination with new inventions. A TM
provides brand name recognition to a product. Patent illustrations are different than TM

When you come up with a TM, here are some steps you can take.(1) Keep it secret
until you use it. (2) Make sure the mark is not to generic. It should do more than merely
describe your invention. (3) Make sure the mark is not already in use, by some else. Like US
patent searches, TM searches reveal if your mark is already in use or not. You can
do this yourself or hire someone to do it. (4) Use your TM. (5) Register your TM.
You do not have to register it, but it may add to its value. (6) Use it properly as a brand name.
