Not every mark is registrable with the USPTO, and not every mark is able to be protected legally, so it’s important to fully evaluate what mark you want to register and ensure that what you’re filing for will properly protect you. Proper preparation for a trademark application can help you clarify where your desired trademark falls and gain a clearer vision for your trademark. Before filing for a trademark, you must identify your mark format, goods and/or services to which the mark will apply, and know what your basis is for filing.
Because the application is very important to getting successfully registered, you might want to consider whether or not hiring an attorney is right for you. Our experienced attorneys at IBC Law Firm can help you prepare your application to ensure it covers your trademark needs, and help you navigate through the entire application process to registration.
