Introduction

Trademarks
Trademarks play a vital role in international commerce. They enable those who create and/or provide goods and services to reap the benefits of their ingenuity and industry. They also enable consumers to identify the things they want to own and use and offer a degree of protection against consumer fraud. The more you know about trademarks, the better able you are to protect your own trademark rights and benefit from others' trademark use.

Trademarks and the Web
The Web is a particularly powerful tool for trademark owners and consumers worldwide. The Web enables trademark owners to build and strengthen their trademark rights and public recognition thereof. It can also assist them in determining whether a particular trademark is available for adoption and use.

The Web enables consumers to learn about the products and services offered in connection with particular trademarks. By discovering goods and services that interest you and the commercial shorthand (i.e., trademarks) by which we identify these, you can make more educated choices among competing products.
