Trademark Registration

« Back to Glossary Index

A trademark registration is an acknowledgement from a federal or state authority that the owner of the registration has a right to the trademark being registered. It extends certain rights and benefits to the owner of the registration. Typically, federal trademark registrations are significantly more useful than state level trademark registrations, though state trademark registrations have their uses in certain circumstances, such as industries that may be legal at the state level but that are illegal at the federal level (read: cannabis).
