Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process to prove to the USPTO that your DBA name is unique and will be used to brand your goods?

To prove to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that your DBA (Doing Business As) name is unique and will be used to brand your goods, you need to follow a specific process. Firstly, you should perform a comprehensive trademark search. This involves checking the USPTO's trademark database, trade journals, professional publications, and the internet to ensure that your desired mark is not similar to a previously registered mark. Once you've confirmed that your DBA name is unique, you can proceed with the trademark registration process. This process requires you to demonstrate that you are using your mark for commerce purposes. In other words, you need to show that your mark is being used on goods that are being sold. When filling out your trademark application, you will need to describe your trademark and explain how you have used or plan to use it. You will also need to pay the application fees, which can cost up to $350 for a single class of goods.
