Can I Trademark My Band Name?
You can absolutely trademark an acronym that you’re currently using to market and sell your goods and services. One thing to keep in mind if you’re interested in trademarking an acronym is that you should make sure your acronym is unique enough to qualify for trademark registration. That means that both the underlying phrase the acronym stands for should be unique as well as the acronym itself. Generic or merely descriptive acronyms cannot be registered by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
