Can I Trademark a Title?

Yes, you can trademark a title. Authors and creators in the media sector can pursue trademarks to legally reinforce their product.

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

Trademarking a title will prevent unauthorized merchandise and other fraudulently-branded products from being produced and distributed.

A singular piece of work does not meet the requirements of eligibility for trademark registration, as it is already under suitable legal protection by copyright. However, if you produce series of creative works that behave like or resemble a franchise, such as Harry Potter or Spiderman, it is critical that you copyright your title.

If you're seeking a trademark for the title of your intellectual property, contact us today.
