Can I Trademark a Number?
You can absolutely trademark a number if you are using that number to brand your company’s goods and services. However, just because you are able to obtain a registered trademark for a particular number does not mean that you get to stop everyone else from using that number. If you trademark the number 7 for your products and services, we’re not going to have to count to ten with one less number in between 6 and 8. Instead, a trademarked number prevents your competitors from using that same number to market their goods and services, allowing you to grow your brand without having to deal with the competition piggy-backing on your good name to increase their bottom line.
