Can I Trademark a GUI?


Graphical user interfaces, or GUI’s, are not able to be trademarked because they are functional portions of a product your company creates, and not used for the marketing or branding of the products or services offered by your company. That said, you can possibly protect a GUI using design patents and copyrights.

If you are a software developer and interested in protecting the rights to your program’s GUI, contact us today to speak with trademark attorney Eric Norton to discuss some different ways to go about preserving your intellectual property rights.
