Frequently Asked Questions

What should be included in a trademark application?

When preparing a trademark application, there are several key elements that should be included. Firstly, if your mark only contains words, your application must include a mockup of the word or words as you plan to use them. This is to ensure that the USPTO can clearly understand how you intend to use the mark in your business operations. If you're trademarking a logo or symbol, your application should include an image of the mark exactly as it will appear when you use it on your product, collateral, or other materials. This is crucial as it provides a visual representation of your mark, which can help to avoid any potential confusion or disputes in the future. It's also important to note that trademark protection only applies to the exact design submitted in the application. Therefore, if you plan to use your logo or symbol in more than one color, you should submit separate applications for each version, including one in black and white. This ensures that your mark is protected in all its forms, providing you with the most comprehensive protection possible.
