Cognate: A brand new way to claim your trademark rights

Cognate is a simple platform that allows a company to list its name in a database specifically designed to create a trademark directory. When you list your trademark on Cognate, you make a clear and public claim to your “common law” trademark rights, which may be superior even to another party’s federal registration.

Founders: Bennet Collen (president) and Jess Collen

Launched: 2013

Made in: United States, Massachusetts
