« Back to Glossary Index

A trademark that is registered on the Principal or Supplemental Register of the USPTO (or Trademark Office of a foreign country). Although many U.S. states maintain registration systems, registered trademarks traditionally refer to federal registration only. Registration of a trademark can give business owners legal advantages, as it confirms validity of the mark and date of usage, which can be useful in litigation.
