The registered trademark symbol, designated by is a symbol used to provide notice that the preceding mark is a trademark or service mark, which has been registered with a national trademark office. The owner of a registered trademark may commence legal proceedings for trademark infringement to prevent unauthorized use of that trademark.
Registering a trademark name is a vital step for any entrepreneur and makes sure that your products, services, business names, or logos stay unique to your business. Registering a business name as a trademark is not quite as difficult as coming up with that name. The principal benefit of a registered trademark is that it grants a bundle of exclusive rights to the owner, specially the exclusive right to use the mark in relation to the goods and services to which it is registered. In addition, filing an application for registration in the U.S.PTO provides the benefit of licensing these exclusive rights to third parties, thus allowing for more creativity and expansion to a new market.
