Trademarks – Do They Need to Be Registered for Protection?

Trademarks – Do They Need to Be Registered for Protection?

There are federal and state laws that protect registered trademarks, but being the first to register your mark does not mean that you are out of the woods. Unregistered marks are afforded common law rights and ultimately the determining factor to establish the true owner of a mark depends on who was the first to use the mark in commerce. http://www.usa.gov/federal-agencies/u-s-patent-and-trademark-office
