REGISTER YOUR TRADEMARK NAME today

The Trademark Bundle is designed to make registering your trademark simple.  

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, business owner, coach or blogger, the Trademark Bundle simplifies the process, because we handle filing your Trademark Application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).  

All we need from you to get started is to answer a few questions about your trademark, then we’ll handle it from there.  We guide you through every question for  your trademark application, with videos and examples (instead of speaking to you in “legal speak”), so you can confidently answer each question.

FAQs

Put simply, trademarks are words or logos that help consumers identify the source of a product or service. An example of a trademark is the Golden Arches of McDonalds. This stylized yellow “M” identifies to consumers the products and services at McDonald’s.

For the TEAS Standard filing option, the government charges $350 for each Class. So, if you have two Classes of goods and services (like, selling t-shirts in Class 25, and providing legal services in Class 45), you would pay $700 total in government fees for both Classes.  Most people only have one class, so the total you would pay for the government filing fee is $350.  This payment goes directly to the USPTO.

You will pay the government filing fees after you have submitted the questionnaire inside of the Trademark Bundle indicating how many Classes you are selecting (see explanation on Classes above) and prior to E-Filing of your Trademark Application with the USPTO.

By registering your trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, you can protect your company’s good will from potential infringers. Here are three benefits to federal registration.
 
First, you can bring a lawsuit for trademark infringement in federal court. Federal trademark registration allows broad protection for your trademark across the entire United States.
 
Second, you can send a cease and desist letter, indicating that you have the federal rights to your trademark.
 
Third, by not protecting themselves with a federal trademark, you risk other companies using a trademark that is identical or highly similar to yours. In certain instances, other companies may argue that you are infringing on their trademark rights, especially if they file for a federal trademark before you do.
 
If you believe that a word or a logo does or will be important for brand value, you should strongly consider federal trademark protection.
 
A ® can only be used when the trademark has been federally registered.  A ™, on the other hand, can be used without federal registration. Companies often use the ™ symbol when they are considering federal protection, or have applied for a federal trademark but it has not yet registered. 
 
No. There are two ways to register your trademark: (1) When you already are selling products or providing services with the trademark or (2) When you intend to sell products or provide services with the trademark.
 
The first option means you’ve already begun using the trademark with your products or services. You may have already sold t-shirts or provided bakery services with that trademark.
 
The second option means you have a bona fide intent to sell a product or provide services with a trademark. This means you are making a sworn statement that you have a true intent to use this trademark to sell products or provide services with a trademark. 
 

It is advisable to file as soon as possible.  Even if you are not yet using your trademark in business, you can file for a federal trademark if you have a bona fide intent to use that trademark with your goods and services.  In this case, your filing date becomes the constructive use date, which is nationwide in effect, and provides notice to others about the rights to your trademark.  On the other hand, suppose a company was planning to use a trademark for a clothing business, but hadn’t yet registered for a trademark.  In that case, that company risks another competitor from registering for the trademark before them, and scooping up the federal rights!

There are many considerations for when people should file for a trademark.  It is ultimately a legal, business, and professional decision.

Trademarks, copyrights, and patents are all examples of Intellectual Property, but they all protect different parts of a company’s portfolio.
 
Trademarks are words or logos that help consumers identify the source of a product or service. It protects the brand of your company. Copyrights protect creative works in fixed forms, like movies or songs. Patents protect inventions. There are two types of patents. The first is a utility patent, which protects how something is used and works. The second is a design patent, which protects how something looks. 

Unfortunately, no. The USPTO now requires attorney representation for all applicants not domiciled in the United States. Only US citizens or US-domiciled companies can use Plug and Law to submit trademark applications.

No. Federal trademark registration in the United States only provides federal trademark protection in the United States.
