Can I Trademark My Blog Name?
Yes, you can trademark your blog name.
You can trademark your blog’s name and logo. For example, the blog name “The Huffington Post” is a registered trademark. You may trademark any materials that brand or differentiate your blog, since it qualifies as an education service. Trademarking your blog name is highly advisable, as it will give you legal recourse if someone attempts to emulate or abuse your blog’s good name.
It is important to note that an application may be rejected if the trademark office deems it too generic. This means that it may be more difficult to trademark a blog called “Jim’s” than it would be to trademark a more distinct name.
As trademark applications involve a nonrefundable fee, it is advisable to contact our associates today to determine if your blog’s name is distinct enough to register as a trademark.
