If you have a brand you want to protect, let's get on a quick call to discuss your trademarking strategy.



And the answer that is, in the U.S., you CAN’T unless it is a title of a series of books.

So if you have more than one book coming out in a series that’s joined with a single title, then that umbrella title can be trademarked. But you CAN’T trademark the name of one single book.

In Canada, however, there is no such limitation. And even if you have one book, that CAN be trademarked.
