You can register a trademark in two ways. You can always seek the help of a trademark attorney, or you may do this on your own as well. Of course, the professional will charge you money for services rendered, but it is worth it. That’s why, most people hire a professional attorney for the job.
Here is the first step towards registering a trademark. Investigation needs to be carried out for the pending trademark application. This investigation can be conducted through a trademark search. You can proceed to the next stage once you have ensured that the mark is not in use, and it is not under consideration of the office. You can reach the office of TEAS for this. You may also file a non-electronic application at USPTO.
Your Trademark Application Must Include the Following
* The applicant’s name must be spelled correctly. An applicant can be an individual or a corporation or partnership.
* Then most updated postal address must also be included.
* Description of the mark. It should have 300 pixels in each in the JPEG file. It can also be three and a half inch in size. You have to keep it posted at the center of a non-glossy paper. The paper must measure eight and a half inches into eleven inches. There should be a name in the heading, and it should also have the address, listing of goods or services, and there should be dates of use or the intent to use.
* Listings of every type of services or goods for which you are using the mark or you have used it before, or your intent to use it.
* When registering a trademark that has already been used, you must mention the exact date when you had used your mark.
* You must provide evidence that the mark was used before, if that is, you had indeed used it. You can provide brochures, advertisements, and business cards as well. They are all acceptable.
* You have to pay the filing fees as well.
So fill out the trademark application and send it over with all relevant documents. It will go first to the USPTO. It will be thoroughly checked to ensure that the minimum requirements have been met. If this is not the case, then it is sent back to the applicant for the necessary corrections or additions. If, on the other hand, it is found to be acceptable, then the USPTO will refer your application to an examining attorney, who will evaluate the legitimacy of your request.
