A common misconception is that having a trademark means that one legally owns a particular word or phrase and can prevent others from using it. However, one doesn’t have rights to the word or phrase in general, but rather only to how that word or phrase is used with their specific goods or services.
Learn the basics of trademark rights and registration in the USPTO’s federal Trademark Searching webinar series. On Feb. 14, from 10–11 a.m. E.T., they’ll cover how to do a trademark search on the USPTO’s website, as well as other information on federal trademarks.
Register at the USPTO site. Space is limited.
Targeted to small business owners/entrepreneurs interested in learning about trademarks, it will cover how to apply for a federal registration, as well as:
- Navigating the search interface
- Simple searching using drop-down menus
- Viewing, filtering, and sorting search results
- Finding help
A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.
