What is the purpose of a trademark in New Jersey?
A trademark refers to a name, word, sound, symbol, or device that is used to identify the goods of one seller from the products of another. Essentially, a trademark is used to ensure that consumers do not confuse brands, while also making sure that no one is able to use the symbol without permission. For example, symbols that are associated with a specific brand are a result of trademarks.
How does the trademark process work?
In order to obtain trademark protection for your product, you will need to go through a specific process that involves a trademark application and then approval from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. It is critical that you have the support of a skilled intellectual property attorney that can ensure that you obtain the trademark protection you need.
Do I need to retain the services of a U.S. licensed attorney to represent me at the USPTO?
There are several factors to consider when determining whether or not you will need to hire an attorney for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Offices. As stated on uspto.gov, if you are a foreign-domiciled trademark applicant, registrant, or party to Trademark Trial and Appeal Board proceedings, you will need to be represented by a U.S.-licensed attorney. On the flip side, if you are a trademark applicant, registrant, or party domiciled in the United States or its territories, you do not need to retain the services of an attorney. Because of this, the process is complicated, and it is highly recommended that you hire the services of an experienced and knowledgeable U.S.-licensed trademark attorney.
