Common Law vs. Registered Trademarks

Common Law Trademarks

Under common law, some rights to a mark can be established by the first person to use a specific mark in a commercial setting. These rights are very limited and difficult to enforce, which is why a registering a trademark is significantly beneficial.

Registered Trademarks

Registration of a trademark affords additional protections that common law rights do not provide. See our previous post on the Benefits of Trademark Registration.
