Just Wanna Trademark: Legal DIY

We think this is the most important book we've written so far.  Every business--big  or small should be applying for a federal trademark for their company name and/or important products.  The process can be done on your own.  We walk you through it in this book.  And if you need a lawyer, we can strategize with you on how to find one. Why is it important?  Hashtags. Now that hashtags are so important as source identifiers, you want to be able to claim territory on that, and if necessary have competitors or others refrain from using your trademark as a source identifier. The only powerful way to do that is to register your  Mark.   How much does the process cost?  $225 to register your mark with the U.S. Government, and right now, we've priced the Just Wanna Trademark book at $50.  You learn a skill that you can use over and over, both for yourself and your friends.
