Avoid the Headaches

The last thing you want is to go through the entire trademark registration process only to hear from the USPTO that your mark is too similar to an existing trademark. When a USPTO application is rejected, the fees you paid are nonrefundable. That’s why Trademark Engine safeguards the process by offering a free, direct-hit search for any direct matches when registering a trademark.

Trademark Registration FAQs

What is a trademark?

A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol, or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of another. You might also hear or read about “service marks,” which distinguish the source of a service rather than a good. Typically, both marks are referred to simply as a “trademark” or “mark.”

Why is it a good idea to trademark your company name and logo?

Registering a trademark entitles the holder to a presumption of ownership on a national level, and they have a presumed right to use the mark nationwide. It also makes it easier to prevent someone from filing for a trademark confusingly similar to your own and can help strengthen your case if you happen to take someone to federal court for infringing on your brand. 

Filing your trademark with the USPTO can prevent potential infringement because your mark will be maintained in the USPTO database, potentially discouraging others from using it.

Can a nonprofit organization obtain a trademark for its name?

A nonprofit organization’s name may be eligible for a trademark. Typically, filing for a trademark helps prohibit the unauthorized use of a nonprofit’s name for actions that don’t align with its social mission or function. Note that the USPTO will want proof of your organization's nonprofit status.

Don’t be confused by the “use in commerce” requirement in a trademark application. It works a little differently for nonprofits. For example, if your organization provides goods or services to the homeless and receives funds from others, this is generally enough to cover the “use in commerce” requirement.

How long does a trademark last?

Trademarks can last forever under the right circumstances. When you properly register a trademark, you must renew it through a Declaration of Continued Use between the 5th and 6th anniversary of its filing and again between the 9th and 10th anniversary. Following that, trademarks must be renewed every ten years.
