What are common law trademarks?

Common Law trademarks are unregistered trademarks that have certain, limited rights.

While federally registering a trademark is still the "gold standard," it's important to look for Common Law trademarks when conducting a trademark search.

If you were to federally register your trademark while another company was using the same mark before you without a registration, that company could cancel your registration on the grounds that they have prior use.

In fact, a federal trademark registration can be challenged for the first 5 years that it is registered, so it's extremely important to make sure you check for any Common Law trademarks prior to filing for registration.
