Can I trademark a Road Sign?

Yes, you can trademark a road sign if you are using the image of the road sign to identify and promote your company’s products.

This information was provided by our founding attorney, Xavier Morales, Esq. 

In order to trademark a road sign, you must demonstrate to the United States Patent and Trademark Office that you are utilizing the road sign to identify your products from your competitors'.

If you trademark a road sign, it will prevent competitors from using it to mislead consumers. Trademarking a road sign will not grant you sole control of the image, nor will it prevent federal or state authorities from using the sign, as that is well outside of the protection of a trademark.

If you desire to trademark a road sign, you should contact our associates today for a thorough trademark check, as many road signs are already trademarked.
