trademark-symbols (1)In most jurisdictions, the majority of trademark filings are made by small businesses and entrepreneurs or solopreneurs. When starting a business, it is easy to get caught up on getting your business off the ground. Below outlines the TOP 10 mistakes trademark owners can make (and we will teach you how to avoid them and MUCH more in our seminar, ABC’s of Protecting Your Brand, on February 20, 2019).

  1. Not Realizing That Protecting Trademarks Could Create Value for Your Business.

Not investing in protecting their trademarks will diminish the value of their business in the future.
