Protecting your trademark is critical. Often business owners do not register trademarks federally at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) because they are unsure of how to do so or because they do not understand the benefits of registering. It is more costly to not register- you may be required to change the name and destroy all goods, pay damages and pay your profits if it is determined that you are infringing on someone else’s trademark.
In All About Trademarks: Everything You Need to Know About Trademarks from a Former USPTO Trademark Examining Attorney, Andrea Hence Evans, Esq. uses her extensive experience and expertise in trademark law to provide you with the tools you need to understand how to protect your trademark at the USPTO and how to avoid making common mistakes. This book is sure to help anyone looking to register their trademark and to help readers to understand how to navigate a trademark application successfully through the USPTO process.

The USPTO recently released a report on the trends and characteristics of U.S. women inventors named on U.S. patents granted from 1976 through 2016.
Sadly but not surprisingly, the report showed that women still represent a minority of inventors with patents.
