Can I trademark a sound?

Yes, sounds are entitled to trademark protection if they act to identify the source of the goods or services. Sound marks are far less common than trademarks for logos or business names but are still entitled to the same level of protection. Songs are typically only eligible for copyright protection under the federal law but there are rare instances of usage as a trademark. An example of a sound trademark is the XBox start-up chime.
