Protecting Your Blog with a Trademark

Posted by Michael Rada | Aug 04, 2021

Your Blog Name Can Have Trademark Protections

If you have a Blog that is part of, or maybe all of your brand, you may want to consider getting the blog name protected with a trademark. A trademark will protect your brand name, or here, your blog name, from being used by others in the specific area, or even related areas to your blog content. If someone does use your blog name, you have the ability to use a variety of legal remedies. If your blog name is unique and you wish to protect it, you should consider getting it registered as a trademark. As mentioned above, the trademark will provide you with protection from infringers who want to use your blog name, and essentially steal the brand recognition and reputation that you worked so hard to grow.

Hire an Attorney to Assist

Once you have chosen a unique name or logo for your blog, you should consider working with an experienced trademark attorney to help you succeed. The first step will be to do a comprehensive trademark search where your attorney will scan the USPTO trademark database and other sources of "common law" trademarks such as social media, internet sellers, amazon sellers, etc. Here, your attorney is looking for potential conflicts with your mark that may create an infringement issue and cause your application to be rejected by the USPTO.

Once the clearance search is performed, your attorney will submit the trademark application and follow it through each step of the trademark application lifecycle. Here, your attorney will keep you advised and updated of the status of your application and provide any additional information that the USPTO may request.

At the end of the application process, if all goes well, your trademark application will be accepted by the USPTO and your trademark will be registered! At that point you will have full protection from infringers and be able to rest easy that you have taken the important step to build and protect your brand!
