What is the cheapest way to apply trademark?

The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is responsible for maintaining the register of trademarks in the US. It’s an agency that handles intellectual property issues including patents and copyrights. One of the most common ways to apply for trademark is through the USPTO itself, but you can also choose to get professional help with your trademark application. In this article, we will be looking at some of the cheapest ways to apply for a trademark.

 

You can apply for a US trademark yourself, or use a lawyer.

  • If you choose to apply yourself, you will need to pay the filing fee. The cost of this fee varies depending on how many trademarks are being filed and whether the mark is for goods or services, but it generally costs around $250. A helpful guide from the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) lists all the different fees associated with trademark applications here.
  • If you choose to hire a lawyer and file through an attorney, their fees will depend on what kind of work they do on your behalf and how long it takes them—the hourly rate might range anywhere between $200-$300 per hour (though higher rates are not uncommon).

A trademark application must be filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

The USPTO is responsible for maintaining the register of trademarks in the US. In order to apply for a trademark, you must file a US trademark application with the USPTO and pay a filing fee.

Your application should be filed in English using Form 1-16a and include a declaration of use or excusable nonuse under section 8 or section 66(a) of the Trademark Act (15 U.S.C 1056(a)).

The process is the same for all types of applications, whether they are based on use, intent to use, or international registration. It takes up to five months before your application is reviewed.

If you have a trademark application, the process is the same for all types of applications, whether they are based on use, intent to use or international registration. It takes up to five months before your application is reviewed.

The time it takes to review your application depends on the type of application and how many other trademark applications are in queue with the USPTO at that time.

If you have an intent-to-use application (ITU), expect at least three years before your trademark will be registered by the USPTO. If you have a foreign registration under Paris Convention Priority Date Claim system and want to file an ITU based on this international registration date then expect approximately 18 months from filing date before receiving notice of allowance from USPTO.

  • You can do it yourself. To file your own trademark application, you need to fill out a form and submit it with payment information to the USPTO. The whole process takes about six months and costs $275 (excluding any state fees).
  • Use an online service provider. If you are not interested in doing it yourself or hiring an attorney, there are online services that can help you with your application. These services charge anywhere between $300-$2,000 depending on what type of service they offer (i.e., basic filing only or full support throughout the entire process).

A common way to file your trademark application is through an online filing service provider.

Another way to apply for trademark is through an online filing service provider. This option can save you money, save you time and help you avoid mistakes. An online filing service provider will guide you through the process, which may include:

  • Finding out if your mark is available for use
  • Designing a logo that meets trademark requirements

Another way to save money on your US trademark application is by choosing a registered patent attorney or agent.

Many patent attorneys and agents are registered with the USPTO and can aid you in the process of filing your trademark application. They have experience with this process and know how to file a strong application. If you choose a registered attorney or agent, they may charge less than an unregistered one because they have a lower overhead due to their registration status. A registered attorney or agent will typically charge about $1,000 for filing an application, so it’s worth investigating if that is within your budget.

If you decide to hire the services of a registered patent attorney or agent, there are several things you should do first.

If you decide to hire the services of a registered patent attorney or agent, there are several things you should do first.

  • First, check that the attorney or agent is registered with the USPTO. If not, they cannot represent you before the Trademark Office. See “Who Can Practice Before the Trademark Office” in this guide for more information on how to verify an individual’s registration status.
  • Second, confirm that your potential choice has experience in trademark law and has successfully represented clients in similar cases by reading reviews online and asking friends who have had legal work done by your potential choice of attorneys or agents. You can also contact other attorneys who practice trademark law and inquire as to whether they know them personally. If possible, have someone else interview any attorney candidates on your behalf so that no personal bias enters into your decision making process (see below).
  • Third, ensure that your prospective counsel charges reasonable fees for their services based on industry standards for similar types of tasks performed by other attorneys in similar areas around major cities throughout America (e.g., $300-$600 per hour).

Applying for a trademark can be expensive but there are ways to save money when doing so

You can save money by doing it yourself. If you’re doing US trademark filing yourself, the cost is $225 per class of goods and services you wish to register.

You can save money by using a registered patent attorney or agent. The cost of an attorney or agent varies widely based on where they are located and their experience level but in general they charge anywhere from $1,000-$2,500 per application.

You can save money by using an online filing service provider like LegalZoom which charges around $300 per application plus any additional fees such as those charged by the USPTO for examining your trademark application ($100) and issuing a registration certificate ($275).
