So What Does Having A Registered Trademark DO?
IT GIVES YOU:
Let's Back Up A Sec...
So what exactly is a trademark?
A trademark is a designation of the source of goods or services (i.e., who made it or provides it). It’s not necessarily your business name but could be!
It is a word, phrase, symbol, or design (or combination) that distinguishes the goods/services of one party. Your MARK MUST be attached to something you are SELLING FOR $$ - a product or service - meaning, you couldn’t just trademark the name of a Facebook group.
Examples of good/product registered trademarks:
-Nike Swoosh: Swoosh is the trademark and product is athletic clothing and shoes
-Absolut: Spelling and bottle shape is trademarked, product is vodka 🍸
How the Registration Process Works
By choosing Destination Legal you’ll get the following benefits:
See what some of our trademark clients have to say:
The full trademark registration process and approval can take anywhere from 4- 18 months (average is less than one year).
Yes - that is, IF your market/customers are in the US! It doesn't matter where you or your biz are, but if your brand is present in the US, you want US protection
A 'class' is the goods or services you are selling that will be connected to the brand. For example, Starbucks is protected under Class 030 for coffee and food. If you are a coach, your services would be coaching, online training, etc. I will help you figure this out (Classification is one of the main parts of the application process that can get screwed up by trying to do it on your own!)
A registered trademark will mean that you own the right to use that name in your particular business niche - while it doesn't mean you can keep the world from using the name, once you have the trademark you CAN stop others from using it in their business if they are selling similar goods or services.

No - however, you can register in multiple countries. There is an application that allows multiple countries once you have do that initial application with the USPTO. If you want this, we can chat!
Unfortunately not! However, I won't proceed with your application unless I'm 99% confident there is a high chance of approval. If I determine its not a good bet, I will issue a refund, minus $299 for the cost of the initial search and determination. Note - there is no guarantee that any search will uncover all possible conflicts.
No, anyone can file an application for a trademark. BUT (and that's a big but) the application process can be complicated and if the USPTO has ANY questions at all and sends an initial refusal, it can be super confusing for someone that isn't an attorney. Sadly many people jump ship and think their mark was refused for good, but really they might just need to make a good legal argument!
