Patent & Trademark, Questions & Answers by Andrew P. Lahser, Attorney

  1. Can a Canadian company recieve a US trademark?
    Yes. Foreign companies may apply for and receive US trademarks. There are three filing options.
  2. Does trademark registration of an imported product require consent?
    Trademarks do not confer the exclusive right to sell products. Trademarks protect consumers from becoming confused about who is selling them stuff.
