Can I Trademark Letters in the Greek Alphabet?
You can absolutely trademark letters in the Greek alphabet so long as you are using a letter or combination of letters to market and sell your company’s goods and services. Because letters in the alphabets for languages around the world are in the public domain, you can use them in the names and logos—or slogan’s if you’re into that kind of thing—as you choose. Of course, you’ll still have to come up with a unique name or logo if you want to register a trademark, even if you are using a foreign alphabet.
If you are part of a sorority or fraternity and want to protect its name and acronym, or if you use the Greek alphabet to advertise your goods and services, contact us today to speak with trademark attorney Eric Norton to discuss the importance of a thorough trademark clearance search and how to trademark your brand’s name, logo, and slogan.
