A trademark is generally a word, phrase, symbol, or design, or a combination thereof, that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. A service mark is the same as a trademark, except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than goods.
Generally, the terms “trademark” and “mark” refer to both trademarks and service marks. A trademark is the key factor in setting a product or company apart from others that provide similar services or products.
