Can I Trademark a Watermark?


As a photographer, you know how tough it can be to keep your work attributed to you—so you watermark your images before you put them online for all the world to see. That watermark can become your brand as a photographer, meaning you can absolutely trademark the watermark you use to identify your goods and services. While a good watermark may help cut down on copyright infringement, a trademarked watermark gives you a second tool in your arsenal to cut down on your competition stealing your photos and passing them off as their own. Just make sure your watermark is unique and original if you want to trademark it.

If you are a photographer, videographer, or artist who watermarks their work, contact us today to speak with trademark attorney Eric Norton to discuss the importance of a comprehensive trademark search to ensure your watermark is not already used by another creative industry professional and why trademarking your watermark may help you further enforce your rights.
