Most of the time, it is easy to determine that a product is protected by a trademark. However, there are times when it is not legal to use a trademark.
The two most common situations are when you use a trademark in such a way as to create a confusingly similar product, or when you use a trademark to endorse another product. In the first case, your product will clearly not be protected, and in the second, it may not even be an trademark.
It is not legal to trademark a non-trademarked product.
I know that sounds a little bit gross, but it really isn’t. There are plenty of products in the marketplace that are not trademarks, and many others that were registered as trademarks and are not protected. In many cases these products are merely variations on existing trademarks.
If you really want to trademark something, you have to register it, and if you don’t, Google will be sure to find it. The fact that you are trying to trademark a product which is not protected by a trademark is a problem, and a trademark is a legal way to protect your product.
The same is true of the term “product.” The term “product” is not protected by trademark law so if you want to trademark it, you’ll have to register it. But when you register it, you’ll be using your mark in a way that can’t be trademarked.
But you can’t use the same mark twice in one product line, so you can’t trademark your entire line, you can only trademark some of your own product lines.
If you are not aware of the trademark law, you may not be aware that trademarks can only be registered once. The first time you use a mark in your product line, you cannot register a trademark on that mark. The first time you use a mark in a line that is the same as the previous mark in your product line, you can register a trademark on the entire line and claim that the prior mark is the same as the mark in your product line.
We’ve already discussed the fact that you can only register a trademark once, so we have to move on to the trademark question. What about the question of whether a mark that is the same as the previous mark in your product line is protected as a trademark? This is a legal question that depends on which mark you are referring to. If the mark is simply a continuation of the earlier mark, then the mark is protected.
The question is: is that a mark that is not protected? Why? Because the law says that the owner of a trademark cannot register a mark that is not protected by a trademark. The law is one that can be read over and over again. The law says that the owner of a mark is the one who is claiming the trademark. That is not a trademark. The law says that the owner is the one who has the trademark.
