Trademarks are an important asset for many companies. A trademark identifies the source of goods and services, conveys an expectation of quality, and sets a company apart from its' competitors. Trademarks can also be monetized through licensing agreements and other means and even used as collateral for business loans! You want to ensure you are protecting your trademark and preserving its' value. Read below for more information on what trademark services INTELLEQUITY® offers.
Trademark Searches- From $200 to $600
Not only should you be looking in state databases, and checking the internet and domain names, but to do it correctly, you should be conducting a national, and potentially worldwide search of similar marks and logos. This will ensure the mark you want to use will not infringe an existing mark, stands a good chance of being registered, is unique, and will not be diluted.
Make sure the mark you want to register is strong and stands a good chance of approval before you spend all that marketing money. The USPTO strongly encourages applicants to hire private attorneys for their search, as they can be complicated. I can conduct a detailed search of your proposed mark and identify and correct any potential issues of infringement or registrability with the USPTO.
Trademark Registration- Starting at $500
Did you know that 1 in 5 trademark registrations are denied? Even if your application is not denied outright, you could still receive an office action which must be timely and correctly responded to before your mark will be approved. After that, there is the publication and opposition period that your mark must pass as well. Let INTELLEQUITY® help you do it right!
After conducting a comprehensive search, I can properly file an application for registration of your mark, which will greatly improve your chances of registration. In addition, if the USPTO sends an office action, I can respond and correct any deficiencies before your mark's registration is denied. I will equally defend any opposition that might come your way from another registrant.
Trademark Monitoring Services
After you receive the registration for your mark, you may decide it is a good idea to keep watch on it. If another individual or company attempts to register a mark that is confusingly similar or may dilute or devalue your mark, you might want to know this for an opportunity to object to its' use before it registers.
I can provide services that will keep watch on these potential registrations and give you an early jump to object to them at the proper time, keeping your mark strong and protected.
Trademark Maintenance Services
Did you know that once you receive a registration for your mark, you must timely file documents with the USPTO that attest to the fact that your mark is still in use? If you do not, you can lose your mark! This maintenance must initially be done between Year five and six after registration. After that, you must file additional documents to attest to its' use every ten (10) years.
I can help make sure you do not miss any important deadlines and have filed the proper documents to keep your mark alive and strong! I can file Declarations of Use, Declarations of Incontestability and Applications for Renewal on your behalf!
