Can I Trademark Greek Letters?

Yes, you can trademark greek letters. Greek letters are considered public domain in the same way that the English alphabet is, which is to say that the alphabet can be appropriated to create slogans and names without inherently risking infringement.

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

Most sororities and fraternities own trademarks for the Greek letters that comprise their name, as such there are a large number of registered trademarks that use Greek letters. If you would like to use Greek letters to identify your products then you should have a thorough trademark search performed to ensure that there are no conflicting trademarks for the specific letters that you intend to use. A fraternity owning a trademark will not necessarily prevent you from using it, so long as you are not infringing upon the market that the trademark is associated with.
