Some of you may be ready to think of trade marking. Or you may have a process or invention that needs protection. If so, here is a link to the United States Patent and Trademark Office glossary and there are a number of tabs at the top of the page to take you to guides and FAQs and much more.
Example from the site: “trademark – protect words, names, symbols, sounds, or colors that distinguish goods and services from those manufactured or sold by others and to indicate the source of the goods. Trademarks, unlike patents, can be renewed forever as long as they are being used in commerce.”
