A trademark is a source indicator which the U.S. government allows to be registered to protect consumers. Trademark registration reflects the public policy to enhance a consumer’s ability to know what company is the “source of origin” for the goods or services purchased. When consumers buy goods or obtain services under a trademark or brand name they can more reliably expect to receive a certain quality of goods or performance if they know the “source of origin”.
