What is a Strong Trademark? You will want to think about what constitutes a strong Trademark before registering a Trademark. Having a strong Trademark can be very important for a business. You can distinguish your goods or services from others and easily protect them from copycats and infringement by using a Strong Trademark.
Before registering a Trademark, it is essential to consult with an attorney who has experience in Trademark Law. Your Trademark Attorney will ensure you are meeting the requirements for a strong Trademark and are protected. A Trademark Attorney knows little details and requirements that could save you from wasting valuable time and money.
There are different types of Trademarks. A Trademark Attorney will be able to help guide you in picking a solid Trademark. Some are easier to not only register but protect in cases of infringement. The best Trademark is either Fanciful, Arbitrary, or Suggestive.
Three different types of Strong Trademarks.
- A Fanciful Trademark:
- Consists of a made-up word that only functions as a Trademark.
- For example, Xerox was non-existent before being Trademarked for copy machines.
- An Arbitrary Trademark:
- This will be a word that has no correlation to the product you are looking to protect.
- For example, Apple has notoriety as an enormous tech company, but the plain meaning of apple is a fruit.
- A Suggestive Trademark:
- This is a word or phrase that requires imagination to get to the product.
- For example, “Chicken of the Sea” will require a consumer to think before concluding that the product is tuna.
