I started Make Your Trademark to assist individuals and small businesses to have access to brand protection and a trademark lawyer at an affordable price.

Prior to beginning Make Your Trademark I worked for a small Seattle law firm preparing and filing trademark and copyright applications as well as a sole proprietor assisting individuals and small businesses navigate trademark and copyright processes.

I am also COO of a the largest Electronic Voting Company in the United States, Democracy Live. As COO I not only run the business and operations but also am introduced to a variety of unique intellectual property issues.

Legal Answers
Q. How would I trademark my Game?
A: You can You can file a trademark application with the USPTO. It is best to first work with a trademark attorney or filing service for them to walk you through the process and to conduct a search to ensure no other names in the same class of services exist already. The type of game will determine the class of goods and services to file in.
Q. Hi. How can I claim an abandoned trademark? I read that I need to see if the owner is still using it for anything too.
A: To start you should look at why the mark was abandoned. Was it denied originally due to an office action and the owner let it lapse, or are they no longer using the mark. If a mark is no longer in use and abandoned you may file for an application with the USPTO for the abandoned mark in the same class of goods and services. It is best to speak to a trademark service to assist.
Q. Am I required to do attestations in all 50 states for federal trademark? Company filed with asking $73 x 50 = $3650
A: There is no requirement to do an attestations in any state and it is not part of the USPTO process. The mark once filed with the USPTO will be assigned an examining attorney. Generally, at this time it takes about 8-12 months for an attorney to actually review the application. If your attorney is asking for this step it is misleading and not required. No further action would be needed at this time.
