Trade Names

Incorporating a company may show when you first started using a trade name, but does not grant you any particular trademark rights. There is a distinction between a trademark and a trade name. A trade name can act as a trademark, but does not always.


Nice Agreement

Most countries in the world, with the notable exception of Canada, employ the International Trademark Classification System, adopted as part of the Nice Agreement. This system classifies trademarks in forty-five (45) broad categories of goods and services. When filing a trademark application, you must identify which class or classes of goods or services you wish to cover and pay a separate filing fee for each class. Because the trademark office reviews each class of goods independently, it is typically advantageous to file a separate application for each class sought. (That way if one class is rejected or requires further review, the other classes will not be held up and the applications will register faster).


Domain Name Disputes

The firm protects owners of marks from cybersquatters as well as protecting legitimate domain name holders from reverse domain name hijacking.
