Protect Your Brand With Our Flat Fee Trademark Registration Service
The registration of a trademark or service mark is not a mandatory requirement under either state or federal law. However, if a mark is left unregistered, common law protection may be limited to those areas in which the mark has actually been in use in commerce or becomes known. This means that the mark will remain unprotected in any areas it is not actually being used in commerce.
Federal “intent to use” trademark registration gives trademark holders the right to use their mark in those geographic areas where no prior use of the mark or a confusingly similar mark has been made. Federal trademark registration provides the most protection available under United States law.
With the release of the new top-level domain names and the ability of trademark owners to protect their marks with ICANN’s Trademark Clearinghouse, federal trademark protection has become even more important.
