Trademark and Intellectual Property Laws Explained

What is a Trademark?

A trademark is any word, symbol, or other device used to distinguish a business’ products or services from those provided by others.  

What Law Governs Trademarks?

Trademarks are governed by both state and federal law.  The Trademark Act of 1946 (15 USC 1051, et. seq.), also known as the “Lanham Act,” is the operative federal statute.  On a state level, trademarks are governed by each state’s trademark, unfair competition, and deceptive trade practices statutes.  The operative statutes in Illinois are the Trademark Registration and Protection Act (765 ILCS 1036/1, et. seq.), the Counterfeit Trademark Act (765 ILCS 1040/0.01, et. seq.), and the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Practices Act (815 ILCS 505/1, et. seq.)
