Trademark Law for Paralegals

Understanding how to file for and enforce a trademark can be crucial to defending your goods and services against unlawful copies, learn how to do this with our expert presenters.

Trademarks are in use by business enterprises of all sizes for all sorts of goods and services, however, there are many misconceptions about what constitutes a trademark, how to protect a trademark and how to enforce a trademark. This topic is intended to be an introductory primer to paralegals working with federal trademark registrations. In addition to providing an overview of trademark law and explaining the differences between trademarks and other types of intellectual property registrations, it will focus on the application process, steps in prosecuting applications to registration and maintenance of registrations. The information will touch on enforcement, including both offensive and defensive strategies to employ to protect trademark rights and registrations, make you familiar with the trademark registration and enforcement process, and understand the various considerations that clients will need to address as they seek to protect and enforce their trademark rights. You will be able to identify sufficient evidence of use of trademarks, the types of trademark registration applications, the timeline for maintaining a trademark registration and the options for enforcement of trademark rights.
