Trademark Registration for Oakland Companies
For businesses in Oakland, trademark registration is often a long and difficult process, one that involves multiple steps and requirements. First, the business must conduct meticulous USPTO records searching, in order to confirm that no one else is already using the proposed trademark. Once that is complete, the trademark then needs to be filed with the USPTO. After being turned in, the trademark application undergoes rigorous review, which is why it’s so crucial that the application be filed correctly. Because this process tends to be complicated and sometimes is hard to understand, the USPTO highly recommends that applicants enlist the services of experienced trademark attorneys like Josh Gerben.
After the Trademark Is Registered
Even after a business has successfully registered its trademark, its job is not done. Moving forward, it must guard that trademark carefully, and it must renew the trademark as mandated by the USPTO. When another business or individual uses your trademarked information in an unauthorized manner, trademark lawyer Josh Gerben can help to determine the best way to respond.
