What Can be Trademarked?
A logo, company name, or anything signifying a source can be trademarked.
Trademarks protect the source of the idea. In your day-to-day life, whether you are drinking a Coke or going to Disney, you are surrounded by trademarks. As an artist, you see it more commonly in regards to names. For example, there is only one Drake, only one Eminem, and only one Lil Wayne. Protecting your name, or brand, as a business could make all of the difference when it comes to your exposure and familiarity. This process is no small feat and it can take upwards of a year from start to finish. We vow to stay in contact with you every step of the way to avoid obscurity.
