Register your logo
logo image by Juliane from Fotolia.com
A company logo is the core of your business brand. Many logos incorporate the company name with a symbol or in creative font patterns and may even include an image. Once you have designed the logo that captures the essence of your company, protect your company by registering for a trademark. Trademarks protect against others using the same or similar word, phrase or symbol, possibly infringing on your company brand for their own profit.
Pick whether you want to register the logo on a national level or on the state level. A federal registration with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office provides broader coverage but is more expensive than a state trademark registration.
Visit the website for the appropriate registration office. Visit USPTO.gov for federal registration information or go to FindLaw.com for state trademark office information.
