This application registers a trademark.


14 Days




The term "trademark" means any word, name, symbol or device or any combination thereof used by a person to identify and distinguish the goods of such person, including a unique product, from those manufactured and sold by others, and to indicate the source of goods, even if the source is unknown. Registration of trademarks are made to show ownership of the mark and to provide protection to the mark itself. Each mark must be reviewed to determine if it so resembles a previously registered mark as not to cause confusion, mistake or deception.


Federal registration may be obtained by contacting the US Patent and Trademark Office at (800-786-9199).
