Patents and trademarks often go hand in hand. The patent addresses the technical aspects of the idea or innovation, whereas the trademark addresses the branding that is critical for its commercial success. Both secure important intellectual property rights.
Why pursue trademark registration? The goal of a trademark is to prevent competitors from reaping the economic benefit of your distinctive brand in the marketplace. Put simply, registration protects the logos, taglines, symbols, certifications and other marks you established for branding purposes. Trade dress - that is, the overall look and feel of the brand - can also be protected.
