Trademarks and Service Marks



A trademark is defined as a word, name, symbol, or device—or any combination thereof—used by a manufacturer or vendor in connection with a product. A service mark is similar to a trademark except that it is used to identify and distinguish the services performed by a particular business entity from those performed by its competitors. For instance, COCA-COLA® is a registered trademark for beverages; whereas, BOOGIES DINER® is a registered service mark for restaurant services.
