Registering a Trademark
It is not required that you register a trademark. You can simply use the “TM” symbol to show that you own the particular words, phrases, symbols, or designs. The ® is reserved for those who have filed and received approval of the registration of their trademark.
Registering your trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, however, provides you with enforceable legal protection. Registering your trademark allows you to take legal measures to prevent others from using it, both within the US, and on imported goods. You can only sue someone for infringing on your mark if it is registered.
Your New York City trademark lawyers, Gogo & Moore, provide advice and assistance with determining the right choice for your business and brand, as well as preparing the application and researching existing trademarks to ensure there will be no issues in approval.
The Approval Process
Registering your trademark begins with an application with the USPTO. NYC trademark attorneys Gogo & Moore not only provide assistance with preparing your application, they will perform preliminary research to give you the best possible chance of a favorable outcome. They will assure that your mark does not infringe on existing trademarks and that it isn’t a geographic term, last name, or description of the goods, as these phrases and terms are not eligible for protection.
Once your application for trademark registration has been properly completed and submitted to the USPTO, it can take about 3 months for you to get your application reviewed and receive a response from the examining attorney in charge of your registration. After the mark has been approved, it will be published online, allowing the public 30 days to oppose your registration.
If no opposition, you will receive your registration certificate from the USPTO about 12 weeks later, and can at that time begin using the ® symbol with your protected words, phrases, and images.
