Ask a Lawyer: Can Any Childbirth Educator Use the Lamaze Trademark?
Abstract:A Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator asks about the use of the name Lamaze, which is a licensed (trademark) name. A trademark is a mark of authenticity. It protects both the users and the consumers. Penalty for unauthorized use (e.g., by a childbirth educator who is not an LCCE) can be substantial.
