Reasons to Consider Using an Unregistered Trademark
A business does not need to file for a registered trademark if it has no competitors. In this case, the state court is the only medium that can deny your logo. Otherwise, the burden of proof is on the plaintiff. It’s important to note that an unregistered trademark doesn’t receive any legal benefits except those provided under common law.
If you decide not to register your trademark, you can still get protection from the law, but only if you can prove that the mark is synonymous with the reputation and goodwill of a product, good, or service.
If a company uses a rival unregistered trademark to sell their goods, this violates the common law tort of passing off.
