Trademark versus Service Mark

Posted by Michael Shimokaji | May 28, 2014 | 0 Comments

Question: Should I trademark, and service mark my company ?

Should I do both? or will I be protected under the trademark? The company is growing, and I want to be sure I do it right the first time.

thank you.

Answer: Your company name might be both a trademark (for goods) and a service mark (for services).

If your name serves both purposes, it might be a good idea to file your application for registration for both.
