How good is your trademark legally speaking? An infographic blast from the 50s that still gives great insights!
The New York patent lawyer Frederick Breitenfeld designed in 1950 a graphic to help understand what it takes to have a « good » trademark from legal perspective.
Even though this infographic has been designed in the 50s and Trademark law has evolved, Frederick Breitenfeld’s chart still gives pretty good advice on how to choose a legally « good » trademark.
