Trademarks pervade our everyday lives, but they are more than mere words, designs or symbols that appear on products or advertising materials. A trademark is a property right. Like any other type of property, it can be very valuable if it is properly cared for and maintained. Zaneta Robinson of Blanco Tackabery will take the mystery out of trademarks by explaining what they are and how to obtain them — and their importance for family businesses.
Zaneta joined Blanco Tackabery in 2011 and works in the Intellectual Property and Civil Litigation practice groups. She has represented clients in a wide variety of general litigation disputes and has substantial experience in opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.
In addition to her litigation experience, Zaneta has several years of experience counseling clients ranging from large educational institutions and medical centers to individuals and startups on trademark registration, licensing and protection. While in law school, Zaneta served on the Wake Forest Intellectual Property Journal and the Moot Court Board as a member of the BMI/Cardozo Entertainment Law team. She is a recipient of the National Association of Women Lawyers’ Award, the North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers Award and the ABA-BNA Award for Excellence In the Study of Intellectual Property. She also served as a teaching assistant for the law school’s Legal Analysis, Writing, and Research program.
