trademarks
Overview

A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or design, or a combination of words, phrases, symbols or designs, that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. A service mark is similar to a trademark, except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than a product. The term “mark” generally refers to both trademarks and service marks.
