Frequently Asked Questions

What are the steps to fill out a trademark application?

Filling out a trademark application involves several steps. Firstly, you should conduct a comprehensive trademark search to ensure your desired mark is available and not similar to a previously registered mark. This search should include the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) database, trade journals, professional publications, and the internet. Once you've confirmed the availability of your mark, you can proceed with the registration process. A key requirement of trademark registration is proving that you are using your mark for commerce purposes. This means demonstrating that your mark is being used on goods that are being sold. The trademark application itself involves two main steps. The first step is to describe your trademark and explain how you have used or plan to use it. The second step is to include the application fees. Registering your trademark for a single class of goods can cost up to $350, and this fee increases for every additional class of goods where you plan to use your trademark. Many individuals opt to hire a trademark attorney to assist with their application. Once your application is filed, the USPTO will review it and may contact you with questions or issues that need correcting.
