So a trademark, we usually think of as a brand or a logo, but technically, a trademark is any kind of word or design or device that signifies the source or particular goods and services. Another way of thinking about it is it’s like a little mini monopoly that the government will grant you to use a certain word or design with certain goods and services, and it can be limited to a certain geographic area.
