Definition - What does Trademark Owner mean?

Justipedia explains Trademark Owner

In order to get a trademark, a company simply has to be the first company to use it, or it can register the trademark with the federal government. Official trademark registration can help to prevent disputes and lawsuits around the trademark. For this reason, many companies choose to register their trademarks.

Unlike patents, trademarks can be renewed indefinitely. They usually last a maximum of 20 years, but a renewal period can begin after that if the trademark is renewed.
