Can I Trademark Something With Joint Ownership?

Yes, you can trademark something with joint ownership. A trademark can have multiple owners. If two or more parties wish to acquire joint ownership, they may file jointly for the trademark.

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

As with any trademark, a jointly owned trademark must be used to promote or sell goods or services. A trademark can protect materials such as names, logos and slogans.

The joint ownership of a trademark is a difficult legal area, as trademarks identify a single originator of goods or services. Typically, a joint filing denotes co-ownership of the actual trademark. This can create difficulty when the two parties disagree on how to utilize or apply the trademark; as such, we highly advise you to seek legal council with an experienced trademark attorney before you file for joint ownership.
