IPscaling

Do you have questions about trademarks and branding? What is trade dress? Why is it important to you, even if you provide a service?

Then, iPscaling is for you. There's a lot that goes into creating a distinctive brand, and there's a lot more to it than filing trademarks.

An original customer experience is distinctive, and a distinctive customer experience can be a type of IP.

The decor, promotional materials, website, social media, everything a customer remembers about your company, products and services add up to define your brand.  Go to iPscaling for more information.

Trademark Knock-out Searches

Every company should conduct a thorough trademark knock-out search prior to offering any product or service to consumers. Even B2B businesses should conduct a knock-out search.  iPscaling can help. 

Your brand identifies you to your customers as the source of goods or services.  The type of intellectual property that directly protects your brand is referred to as a trademark, commonly.

Intellectual property counsel will tell you that trademarks are for identifying the source of goods and service marks are for identifying the source of services.

In addition, design patents can protect ornamental designs on products, and trade dress protects your unique presentation of goods and services, such as packaging of products or a distinctive appearance for restaurants.

Copyrights can protect designs, artwork and advertising copy. Copyrights protect your creative expression, however delivered. It can protect your website and other creative works. 

It is important to learn the differences and similarities among design patents, trade dress, copyright and trademarks. How are they used and why?

When should a small business start using these devices? When and where should these types of devices be registered and in what international class?  

These questions need to be answered BEFORE you sell a product or service.
