What’s the difference between a state and federal trademark registration?

Both state and federal registrations protect your trademark from competitors using a similar trademark for similar goods or services.  State trademark protection is limited to the state of registration, whereas a federal registration protects your trademark throughout the US.  The costs and procedural hurdles are lower for a state registration than for a federal one.
