You may search The United States Trademark Office’s Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS) and Trademark Applications and Registrations Retrieval (TARR) database for free. However, these databases may be difficult to navigate. Trademarkia allows you to easily search federally pending and registered trademarks.
To search for word marks, simply enter the search name located on the Trademarkia website. Enter the mark that you are inquiring about. Please note that this search will only query results containing the exact spelling and spacing of your search. Therefore, you should try searching different spelling and spacing variations of your inquired mark.
To search for logo marks, visit Trademarkia’s logo search page. Simply enter the design elements for the logo that you are inquiring about.

Hope it meets your requirements.

Hello,

Should I trademark just the graphic part of my logo, or trademark the graphic part of the logo with my business name in it as well?

Or would I have to have two different trademarks; one for the graphic, and the other for the business name?

Thank you.

i have a new design company in the UK which is called Studio 66. I would like to use the logo (shield) that Route 66 (car navigation company) has but have my details within the shield?

IS this possible? I cant see a problem since the shield itself is used on highways in the USA probably before Route 66 trademarked it?

I may be wrong, so please if you could help, then let me know

Thanks
