Is the Registered Trademark on our logo new, or have I never noticed it before?

And honestly, why do we need to be trademarked?

I think that it was always there and we just didn’t notice it. Its like your nose being in your field of vision. You forget that its there until you are reminded of it or Patrick pokes it.

Squidward’s nose is so big, it’s hard for me to imagine him not knowing it’s there.

I am fairly certain it has not been there before.

From Wikipedia:

The essential function of a trademark is to exclusively identify the commercial source or origin of products or services, such that a trademark, properly called, indicates source or serves as a badge of origin. In other words, trademarks serve to identify a particular business as the source of goods or services. The use of a trademark in this way is known as trademark use. Certain exclusive rights attach to a registered mark, which can be enforced by way of an action for trademark infringement, while in some countries unregistered trademark rights can be enforced pursuant to the common law tort of passing off

So, for example, a person can’t start another website and put our logo on it and pretend to be KYM or have their services endorsed by KYM. Just another layer of intellectual property protection.
