Trademark Frequently Asked Questions

Can I obtain a U.S. federal trademark registration for anything?

No. You cannot apply for marks that are either generic in nature or that are likely to be confused with prior registered marks. A mark is considered generic in nature when it has no ability to distinguish one's products and/or services from others. Generic marks usually consist of widely-used terms or phrases, such as using BOTTLED WATER to sell bottled water.
