Trademark Overview

Last Updated August 4, 2008
A trademark is used to identify the source of a specific product. A trademark may consist of a word, phrase, design, symbol, color combination, or packaging. Businesses may register their mark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), but this is not required. A business may simply use the symbol "TM" with its mark to give notice that it is using a mark as a trademark.
