If I trademark my website (ie., joeblow.com) does that trademark include all the content therein? Or just the name joeblow.com and our right to do business under that name? Would that TM include our merchandise like t-shirts and notepads? Also, If I DID trademark my site, would I still have to get a copyright for the other materials on my site, ie., original writing, pictures, photos and the rest of it? I already read the FAQ, and did not find the answers there. Thanks for your time. ZM

Hi, I want to trademark or copyright the name of a new line of jewelry. I already have one trademark, Beauty Crisis for bags and apparel. Should I do this as a subsidiary of that line? I do not have a logo yet, so should I just copyright the name and then do the Trademark when I have a slogan and a / or a logo? Thanks so much!
