what about if i start using the logo with the trademark symbol can someone steel my logo and register it?Yes, you can ™ things on your own, but you cannot ® without registering for it.
Just because you put a ™ on something doesn't necessarily mean it's valid for trademark. Good Morning™ doesn't count.
Technically, yes they can. But if you have proof of "use in commerce" that precedes their trademark application, you can take legal action to gain rights to the mark.what about if i start using the logo with the trademark symbol can someone steel my logo and register it?
Gee I get order likes this all the time......Mind you I put my logo and website (www.promopens.ca) on them and sell pens.....lol....I don't think I have ever gotten a customer that called from finding a pen (back when I tried doing this).
what about social network can i use that?Get a bunch of pens printed with your logo, address (Get a box at a local pack'n'ship or UPS store... not post office if you want to be able to receive UPS packages), and phone number. Leave them all over the universe. Anyplace that doesn't have their own pens that need signatures. Next to the ATM (if the bank doesn't give out free pens of their own), grocery checkouts (sign for your credit card, leave the pen there), etc.
This will not gain you any business. I don't think I have ever gotten a customer that called from finding a pen (back when I tried doing this). But you'll have your pen order with a date, and proof all over your town that this business, at this address, with this phone number, owns this logo.
