What is a Trademark or Service mark ?

A trademark is a recognizable insignia, phrase, word, or symbol that denotes a specific product and legally differentiates it from all other products of its kind. A trademark exclusively identifies a product as belonging to a specific company and recognizes the company’s ownership of the brand.

Protect Your Brand
Individuals and companies have products or services trademarked to protect the product from being used without the permission of the source company. Most countries have patent laws that are designed to protect against copyright infringement. In the United States, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) serves this function.
Sell or License Your Brand
Trademarks can be bought and sold. Famously, Nike, Inc. (NYSE: NKE) purchased the instantly recognizable Swoosh logo in 1971 from a graphic arts student for a one-time price of $35. Trademarks also can be licensed to other companies for an agreed-upon time or under certain conditions, which can result in crossover brands.

Trademark History

Trademarks and their modern symbols—TM for trademark and SM for service mark—signify legal protection, but forms of trademarks have been around since ancient times.

Since colonial times, the United States had been protecting trademarks informally under common law.

In the United States

  • 1791: The conversation about trademark legislation in the U.S. began in earnest during President Thomas Jefferson’s office.
  • 1870: Congress proposed a formal trademark law, but it the Senate squashed it because the bill conflicted with constitutional rights.
  • 1881: Congress passed a new trademark act.
  • 1905: Congress revised it and drafted the final Trademark Act.
  • 1946: Congress passed the Lanham Act, which defined federal trademark rules and gave the USPTO administrative authority over trademark registration.
