Legal Answers
Q. Hi so since it’s abandoned, is Under The Sun available to trademark?
A: Even if a trademark is abandoned does not mean that the mark is available for registration. In order to know if a mark is available start by conducting a quick search on the USPTO for similar registered marks in the same class of goods and services. A search can be complicated and it is recommended to consult with a trademark attorney to see if the mark is available. If no similar or exact marks are registered for your specific class of goods and services you should proceed with filing an application with the USPTO.
Q. It`s possible to add a new business activity, specifically fishing and fishing tools, to my existing trademark registrat
A: If the mark was already filed for a separate class of goods and services, the USPTO requires a new application to be filed to protect against different or new goods and services. If the goods and services fall under a different class of registration it is best to register the mark as a new trademark application.
Q. I like to make Selfiequeen as trade mark. What is the process. I know someone else made Selfie Queen as trade mark.
A: Filing a trademark can vary in cost depending if you are filing an in-use or intent-to-use application. A standard in-use application costs approximately $250 for a TEAS Plus application and $350 for a regular trademark application. It is best practice to have a trademark attorney conduct a USPTO search for prior registered marks that are the same or similar to review if the trademark is going to succeed in registration with the USPTO. If an intent-to-use application is filed additional fees apply after the initial application is accepted by the examining attorney.
