WHAT IS A TRADEMARK?
A trademark is a word, phrase, slogan, symbol or design, or combination of such which identifies the source of the goods or services of one party from those of all other parties. Normally, a mark for goods appears on the products or on its packaging material while a service mark often appears in advertising. Over time, a trademark tends to establish customer goodwill for one's products or services.
Trademark rights are usually acquired by use in commerce. Generally, the prior user of a mark owns the mark in the geographic region in which the mark is in use.
