Can I Trademark Software?

No, you can not trademark software, but you can trademark the name and logo for your software.

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

You can trademark the name, logo, or slogan that you use to sell or promote your software products and services. For example, “ADOBE” is a registered trademark for a variety of software products and services.  Any materials that identify you as the originator of specific product or service can be registered as a trademark. Registering your software’s brand name as a trademark will prevent a competitor from applying a similar name to a similar type of product or service. However, this protection only covers products and services within a similar market; as such there exists the possibility that another product or service in a different industry may have a similar name.

A trademark will not protect the software program itself from recreation or imitation. If you wish to protect the design of a program then you way wish to register a software copyright.

If you would like to protect your software’s brand name and logo, contact us today to get the trademark registration process started.
