#TUESDAYTIPS: Ozelle Martin, Trademark Attorney

Do you need a trademark? Do you own the copyright on your logo? Not sure? Read on for our #tuesdaytips on the subject...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your business name, logo, or product name can be one of your most important assets. It's the face of your business, how you're known to the world. What if someone started using your name? We're guessing you'd be pretty upset about that.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Registering a trademark, like your business name, gives you the sole right to your that name or logo and enforce the use legally in federal court. Whether or not to do it depends on where you want to do business and what kind of business name you have.

Ozelle Martin, Trademark Attorney, helps creative entrepreneurs legally protect their brands, and here's what she has to say on the subject:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“You don’t need a trademark!” As an attorney, I am tired of reading this in Facebook groups. This is TERRIBLE advice and it always comes from people with absolutely no legal experience. They are just running their businesses while having it exposed to many potentially detrimental risks.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Creative entrepreneurs, please ensure that you build your business on a solid legal foundation. You’ve invested too much time, money and energy into your fabulous business to build it on shaky legal ground.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When it comes to trademarks, please consult with an attorney. The application looks deceptively easy but it must be carefully crafted to give you the best shot at achieving registration.
