The Benefits & Advantages of Federal Trademark Registration with the United States Patent & Trademark Office
Though not required, there are advantages of registering trademarks with the United States Patent & Trademark Office which offer several benefits to the registrant. There is notice given to the public of the claim of ownership of the mark made by the registrant, as well as national legal presumption of ownership granting exclusive rights to use the mark on or in connection with the goods or services that are detailed during registration.
The benefits of registration entitle registrant to invoke jurisdiction of federal courts, and can also provide the basis for registering the mark in foreign countries, as well as the U.S. Customs Service to prevent entry of infringing foreign goods into this country.
You would be wise to consult with a Florida trademark attorney first, before undertaking any trademark matters.
