Texas Trademark information and prices
Under both Federal and state laws, a business with a product or service can obtain protection for a word, phrase, logo or other symbol used to distinguish that product or service from others. If a competitor uses a protected trademark, the trademark holder can obtain a court injunction and money damages. Additionally, it is of the highest importance that a company should conduct a trademark search (at the Federal and Common Law level) before obtaining a trademark to see if any same or similar trademarks are already in use; evidence of such a search is imperative to protect the company from being sued for triple damages.
A trademark is any name, logo, symbol or other device used to distinguish a product from competing products in the marketplace and to identify the product's source. A service mark is any name, logo, symbol or other device used to distinguish a service from others in the marketplace and to identify the source of the service. Legally, there is no difference between the two terms, and the terms trademark and service marks are often used for all types of marks, including service marks.
It takes about 10 to 16 months to get a trademark. However, a trademark search will disclose that the application for registrant is pending, and would-be users of the mark are either put on notice that you are already claiming ownership. This usually is enough to stop them from using the mark and thus accomplishes the same result as actual registration.
