It is important to search for potentially conflicting trademarks or service marks. You will save time and money by discovering that your proposed mark is either available for registration or is already registered or being used in association with similar goods and services. If you are not the first user of the mark, you may have to change it, and in some cases, also pay damages to the first user of the mark if a court concludes that your use creates a likelihood of consumer confusion.

LegalSherpa Copyright Registration

A “trademark” is a word, design, symbol, or phrase, or a combination thereof that identifies and distinguishes the source of one party’s goods over those of others. The term “trademark” is often used to refer to both trademarks and service marks.

Once your trademark application is filed it takes the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office about 3-4 months before they conduct their initial review of your trademark application. Following the USPTO initial review it will typically take about another 4 months or longer for a trademark application to receive a registration. Your application can be further delayed if you do not respond to government notices that require your action.

LegalSherpa Review for Accuracy, Common Errors

Once your trademark application is filed with the USPTO, the USPTO will provide you with e-mail updates throughout the process. All official communications from the USPTO will come from an e-mail address ending in USPTO.GOV. Please be aware that there are many companies and lawyers that will e-mail you solicitations throughout the process as well and those should generally be ignored and not confused with official government e-mails.

LegalSherpa Copyright Registration

Copyrights are different from trademarks. Copyright registration filings are used for the protection of creative works. For example, books, blogs, photographs, and music. Trademarks are used for the protections of your business name, logo or slogans.
