The Cheri Hill Show Radio Interview: Trademarks

The Cheri Hill Show invited expert Russ Weinzimmer to discuss trademarks and how they can help your business. A trademark is one of the most important business assets that a company will ever own, because it identifies and distinguishes the company and its products or services in the marketplace from its competitors. Therefore, it is good practice for all business owners to take sufficient action to protect and enforce valuable trademarks.

How to Register Your Trademark

By registering your trademarks, you can assert them in court to stop someone from creating confusion in the market around your goods or services. You don’t want to lose your company’s good reputation because of another company’s bad business practices. You don’t want to lose business because another company is selling goods that appear to be from your company. You need to separately protect each element (ie the logo and the words(s) included in a logo), because each is separately “stealable.”

Patent Process: Increasing Protection From The Moment You File

FreeAdvice.com logo interview with Russ Weinzimmer:

While a patent may take several years to issue, you get increasing protection from the moment you file. The initial 18-24 month waiting period is only to start the process of the government’s examination. It takes an additional 6-12 months to get the patent issued. You don’t want to sue someone who infringes on the patent right away.
