Difference between State TM and Federal TM <\/div> ","content":"

Federal Trademark Registration gives national protection, and puts parties on notice of the trademark across the nation. State Trademark Registration can put parties on notice on a statewide basis, and can give some protection against infringement. However, merely registering a trademark in a single state will give no protection against infringement in another state. Furthermore, if a company does not register a trademark federally, the company may find it\u2019s precluded from expanding with the trademark to other states, where competitors are already using the mark. <\/p> \n\t\t\n\t\t\n\t\t\n\t\t <\/div> <\/div>"}
