Dear Abby: Should I Retain a Patent Lawyer?


In this question to a small business advisor from entrepreneur.com, we disagree with the bit about hiring a patent lawyer to file a trademark application.  We also disagree with the bit about filing  trademark applications oneself.  Previous discussion on who should file here.

My theory is that the common confusion between patents and trademarks is caused by the fact that there is one government agency, namely the Patent and Trademark Office, to handle these two separate rights.
