Trademark Owner
The person or entity who retains legal control over all (or some) of the rights granted under trademark law, usually the first business to use a distinctive trademark on goods or services in commerce. Federal registration is not a prerequiste of trademark ownership but it offers the trademark owner certain benefits. (See also: trademark registration)
