Questions & Answers

The interaction between attorney and client can take as little as a few days as we gather the requisite information for your application. Once submitted, it takes about six months for an acceptance. If rejected there may be an opportunity to convince the USPTO that your application should be resconsidered for acceptance.

The short answer is yes. The long answer is that you might want to register the brand name apart from the logo (aka, design mark). The USPTO requires one application for the trademark WORD and another application for the LOGO. A registered WORD trademark allows you protection to use the brand name in any size, color, or font. The registered LOGO protects the design elements.

The answer depends on what you are trying to accomplish. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) grants trademark registration to companies and individuals who have a bona fide use in interstate commerce. If registered, your brand is protected in all 50 United States and Territories. However, if you do not plan to expand past your State of residence, it may not be necessary for you.

To obtain a federally registered trademark from the USPTO, one must show that the business operates in more than one State. For example, if you sell your goods online, you are selling to customers outside your State and therefore may qualify as selling interstate.
