What is a Trademark? ®
A trademark is a word, name, symbol, logo, or other device that identifies the goods or services of a given person, organization, company, or corporation and distinguishes them from the goods or services of other persons or companies. Trademark law prevents unauthorized use of an existing trademark (such as the name of a musical group or artist) on your merchandise, for profit or otherwise to promote goods, services or events because such use will cause the consumer or participant to believe that the trademark owner has approved of, or endorsed the goods, services or event. A trademark is someone's brand.
