Trademark Registration for Wichita, KS companies
The trademark registration process begins by searching through the USPTO database to see if there are any previously registered trademarks with the government which are too similar to the client’s mark. If the trademark is unique enough to warrant registration, the trademark application is drafted and submitted to the USPTO. During the trademark application process, the specific language used on the application will determine how much protection the trademark receives under United States trademark law. It’s for this reason the USPTO recommends that companies in Wichita, KS use the services of a trademark attorney like Josh Gerben when filing for registration of their trademark.
After a trademark registration is granted by the USPTO
After a company in Wichita, KS receives their certificate of registration from the government (meaning the trademark is registered officially) it’s important for them to know their legal responsibilities going forward. The law states that the companies themselves are responsible for monitoring the marketplace to ensure no one is infringing on their trademark rights. Should a company spot an infringing trademark, the best move is to retain the services of a trademark law firm like Gerben Law Firm, PLLC. Trademarks also must be renewed at specific yearly periods, all of which can be taken care of by Josh Gerben. It’s complicated to register a trademark, but companies in Wichita, KS who hire Gerben Law Firm, PLLC can be confident that their trademarks have the best best chance of being registered and protected.
