A trademark is any word; name, symbol or device used, or intended to be used, in interstate commerce to distinguish the products and services of one company or individual from those of another. In addition to names and logos, trademarks can include any device that distinguishes the source of goods or services. This can include color (e.g., pink for insulation) or even sounds (e.g., NBC's chimes).
