What is a Trademark?

A trademark is a mark that uniquely identifies you, your business, your products or the services that your provide. Clearly stated, it is a mark of your trade. It is your brand. There are many ways for you to define your brand. You can use a name as your trademark, you can use a smell, you can use a shape or you can use an image. Regardless of your choice, you will have a unique identity. That being said, it is also important to protect this identity and filing a Trademark application in the United States

Trademarks refer to the mark of your trade. To be even more precise, trademarks are the marks that represent your business. However, once you have protected your mark, you need to ensure that only you can use that mark for your products/services. Therefore, in order to protect the trademark, trademark registration is implemented.

Trademark registration is a form of registration after which you get the following benefits:

  • 1. Exclusive ownership of the mark.
  • 2. Trademarks that are registered have monatory value.
  • 3. Your mark cannot be infringed by anyone else.
  • 4. You can license your trademark for expansion of your business.
  • 5. You can sell your mark through trademark assignment.

The process of trademark registration can be put in the following steps:

  • 1. Decide upon a unique and an inoffensive trademark.
  • 2. Perform a trademark search to see if the mark is available for registration.
  • 3. File the application for trademark registration.
  • 4. Let the registrar of trademark check the application and the trademark.
  • 5. Wait for a period of 4 months once the mark is published in the journal.
  • 6. Get the certificate of registration for the trademark.
What you should know before filing

Trademark Registration

The trademark application process is a legal proceeding governed by U.S. law.
– If you are a foreign-domiciled applicant, you must have a U.S.-licensed attorney represent you at the USPTO.
– If you are an applicant domiciled in the United States, you are not required to have a U.S.-licensed attorney represent you, but we strongly encourage you to hire one who specializes in trademark law to guide you through the application process. | Read More

Should I Hire a Trademark Lawyer?

On first action, the USPTO accepted just 15 percent of trademark applications filed in 2018 based on filings per class. Perhaps for this reason the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office encourages applicants to hire a private attorney to handle this process. | Read More
