Daytona Beach Trademark Lawyer
A trademark is any word, slogan, or symbol used in commerce to distinguish your goods and services from those of others. In the U.S., logo rights begin whenever you start using a specific trademark. However, those intellectual property rights become stronger when you register that symbol with the state or federal government. Trademark registration gives you a legal right to prevent others from using a confusingly similar word, slogan, or symbol (but not to prevent others from offering the same goods or services under another trademark).
Trademarks and patents for interstate and international commerce should be registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Representing and assisting clients throughout Central Florida and Daytona Beach, Attorney Melody Lankford can assist with a range of intellectual property law matters, including trademark registration, legal disputes over trademarks and IP litigation.
If you need help registering a trademark or if you are involved in a legal dispute over a trademark or logo, attorney Melody Lankford is here to help. Trust your case to an experienced Daytona Beach trademark lawyer and call the Lankford Law Firm at 850-264-7004.
WINNING THE BROADEST POSSIBLE RIGHTS
A trademark application process always involves elaborate procedures and there are a number of potential legal issues that you may encounter. The help of an experienced Daytona Beach trademark and logo lawyer is imperative. In many cases, the USPTO will ask for concessions that can leave you – even after registration – with few logo rights or protections. Unfortunately, many only realize this problem once they’re already in court, facing litigation.
To ensure you protect your brand and receive the rights and protections you need to succeed, it’s wise to contact the Lankford Law Firm to oversee the entire trademark registration process on your behalf.

FULL LEGAL TRADEMARK PROTECTION
A federal trademark registration is evidence of your exclusive ownership and right to use that trademark. Trademark registration also protects a symbol within U.S. borders. You’re also allowed to request seizure by U.S. Customs of goods entering the country with a counterfeit or infringing trademark. Individual states also register trademarks, and this means additional (although geographically limited) symbol rights. International brand and trademark protection is also available by registering in individual countries or multi-nationally through several treaties and conventions.
