Trademarks

A trademark is a piece of media that identifies a business in the form of an image, sound, or other design. Trademarks are protected by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in order to prevent others from using the trademark for business purposes.

Securing the Integrity of a Business’ Identity

Trademarks are a necessary function of businesses in order to ensure that they are able to be identified by consumers. There are two major processes that control trademark law: establishing a trademark, and maintaining a trademark.

Establishing a Trademark

In order to establish a trademark, there are a few considerations: form, availability, and scope. The form of a trademark consists of the media of the trademark. The media can include images, sounds, or other metrics that identify a business. Once these considerations have been taken into account, a trademark application can be filed with the USPTO.

Availability refers to whether or not a trademark is already established for a different business. Finally, the scope of a trademark must be established. Another trademark can be established using similar symbols in certain circumstances, particularly if it is in a different industry.

Maintaining a Trademark

Once a trademark has been established, it must be maintained through regular use. A trademark must be used in order to be kept valid. In addition to usage, it is also necessary to periodically file paperwork with the USPTO.

Trademarks Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a trademark?

A trademark is defined as a name, symbol, jingle, or other media used to identify and promote a product, service, or company such as an officially registered name or logo. Trademarking something prevents use by others and protects the business’ mark from dilution or degradation. 

2. How much does it cost to register a trademark?

The amount of money spent registering a trademark depends on a number of factors including whether the trademark is challenged, whether it is appealed, or whether research is needed to determine if the trademark is valid. The cost of applying for a trademark alone can cost between $500 and $750 depending on how the application is filed. 

3. How do I register a trademark?

In order to register a trademark, an application must be filled out with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). If it is approved, the USPTO will confer official protection onto the trademark until it expires. 

4. How long does a trademark last?

If a trademark is regularly being used, it can be maintained in perpetuity. All that is required to maintain the trademark is to regularly use the trademark and periodically file the required paperwork with the USPTO as is necessary. 

5. Who can help me register a trademark?

In order to ensure that a trademark is properly filed and will be maintained for as long as possible, you will need the help of an experienced intellectual property attorney. An intellectual property attorney can use their expertise and experience to do the necessary research in order to ensure that your intellectual property is protected.
