The trademark symbol is a way to alert others that your original work is protected. You can obtain a trademark for a word, symbol, name, device, or combination thereof that permits consumers to identify and distinguish the goods/services.

The trademark symbol is not only meant to protect the owner of the trademark, but the consumer as well. Consumers want to be able to go into a store and purchase the products of their choice, the trademark not only identifies the product, but the trademark symbol stands for the value and authenticity of the company’s product.

Copyrights are legal protection for your work. A copyright alerts the rest of the world who owns a certain work of art, whether that be a poem, book, or art.

Even though you become the owner of your art at creation, copyrights give you the presumption of ownership should that be questioned and argued before a court. Although all copyright work starts as transactional, going after copyright infringers through litigation to stop infringers from benefitting and profiting off of your hard work is often necessary.

A tradedress must be source identifying, it is the actual configuration of the product or how the product is housed-it is a point of sale. Coco-Cola is a predominant company that has historically and aggressively enforced its rights to its tradedress.

Trademark and tradedress are valuable to the manufacturer as a way of brand endorsement even for new products. Think Starbucks, everyone already knows the company for its coffee and the logo. When the company places the logo on teas, that new product automatically benefits from the reputation of the Starbucks trademark, because we already know it.

Shield law is legislation designed to protect reporters’ privilege, or the right of news reporters to refuse to testify as to information and/or sources of information obtained during the news gathering and dissemination process. Currently the U.S. federal government has not enacted any national shield laws, but most states do have shield laws or other protections for reporters in place.
