What is the difference between the TEAS Plus form and the basic TEAS form in the trademark registration process?

The Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS) is a crucial part of the trademark registration process. It comes in two forms: the TEAS Plus form and the basic TEAS form. The primary difference between these two forms lies in their filing fees and requirements. The TEAS Plus form has a lower filing fee, making it a more cost-effective option for businesses. However, it comes with more requirements compared to the basic TEAS form. This means that while you might save on the initial filing fee, you may need to invest more time and resources to meet the additional requirements. The trademark registration process is a meticulous one, with each product or service requiring a separate fee for registration. The process typically takes about six months, and the information provided in the application becomes public. It's important to note that the filing fee is non-refundable, even if the application isn't approved. If the application is accepted, the USPTO will issue a registration certificate in about 11 weeks.
