A trademark is a symbol, logo, or design that distinguishes a company’s products or services from those of others. Registering a trademark protects the brand and gives the owner exclusive rights to use it.

Generally, it takes anywhere from 6 to 12 months for your application to be accepted or declined.

To receive USPTO approval for your trademark, you must first conduct a rigorous search, then submit an application to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Depending on how quickly they process it, you will soon be informed of their decision - whether approved or denied.

To successfully register a trademark, the applicant must provide the necessary information including their name and address, the goods or services they wish to use it for, as well as an image of their proposed trademark.

A trademark application can be completed independently, but to guarantee accurate results, it is best to seek counsel from a qualified attorney.

Trademark registrations in the United States last 10 years and must be renewed every 10 years.

Should the trademark application be denied, the owner has two alternatives: they can modify their application and resubmit it or appeal the decision.

A trademark protects a brand, a patent protects an invention, and a copyright protects creative works such as literature, music, and software.

Registering your goods or services with the USPTO can cost anywhere from $250-$350 per class, plus professional fees charged by the service provider.
