Can I Trademark a Phrase?


You can absolutely trademark a phrase if you are using that phrase or slogan as a part of the branding for your goods or services. As with all other trademarks, if you’re interested in trademarking a phrase, you will have to come up with something original that uniquely identifies your goods and services as being different than those of your competitors. Once your phrase is trademarked, you’ll be able to enforce that trademark against your competitors who may seek to use your advertising to their advantage, though you won’t be able to stop people from using your registered phrase in conversation.

If you use a phrase as part of the branding for your products or services, contact us today to speak with trademark attorney Eric Norton to discuss the importance of a thorough trademark search to ensure you’re not accidentally using someone else’s trademark and the process for trademarking your company’s phrase.
