Can I Trademark a Website Idea?

No, you cannot trademark a website idea. While you can't trademark a website idea, but you can trademark the website’s name, logo, and slogan.

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

Since a trademark is a name, logo, or slogan used to differentiate your products and services from those of another company, the concept or idea of a website is not something that can be trademarked.

If you are looking to protect your website from duplication, an option is to trademark its unique name and logo. Those aspects are among the things a trademark can protect.

If you’re interested in learning more about how to trademark a website’s name or logo, contact us today to speak with a trademark attorney.
