To protect your brand name or logo at the federal level, a trademark is filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Filing a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) protects against infringement, or in other words, the possibility of other brands stealing, using, or replicating what you have already created.
Failing to trademark your brand name, tagline, or logo can cost you a lot in the long run. If you are operating a business without a trademark, you are essentially risking another brand or business recreating or stealing your creative ideas. By failing to file for a trademark, you as the owner have created a liability and a risk of infringement by another brand or business owner. It is very time consuming and costly to fight an unregistered trademark against infringement, versus one that has been properly filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Long story short, file an application for trademark to have absolute protection of your brand!
If you are already doing business, have goods and services in commerce, or use the internet and social media to promote and market your business, then you should have already obtained a trademark! However, it is not too late!
