After officials examine your trademark to see if everything is in place, it is necessary to publish the trademark to let a third party, if they have a valid reason, present oppositions to the registration of your trademark. If nobody files an opposition, your trademark is registered and registration is published. The process to register for a trademark takes around 12 months, be sure to start the process well in advance.
Thanks so much, IPROCKERS!! Your service has been amazing. Professional and helpful from beginning to end!
We needed to register three different trademarks which we use in our business. IPROCKERS guided us through the process and our trademarks were registered successfully. I do not have much to say, just Thank You!

It can take up to 6-12 months for a federal trademark application to be processed by the USPTO. A strong application can dramatically decrease the chance of setbacks. Due to this, we always advice working with intellectual property professionals.
A trademark application filed with the USPTO must designate at least one filing basis. There are two options:
Actual Use basis: This is applicable when the applicant has been using the trademark in U.S. commerce at the time of filing for the goods or services identified in the application.
Intent to Use basis: This is appropriate for an applicant who has not yet started using the trademark in U.S. commerce at the time of filing, but has a good faith intent to use the mark. Once the trademark is allowed, a Statement of Use (SOU) along with evidence of such usage (called a “specimen”) must be filed in order to secure the registration.
A trademark lasts for an initial period of 10 years from the date of registration, subject to the filing of either a Declaration of Continued Use or a Declaration of Excusable Non-use after five years.
A registered trademark will prevent and stop third parties from using your trademark and allows you to take legal action against anyone who uses it without permission, they have stronger legal brand protection. Unregistered trademark may enjoy copyright protection and can be protected in jurisdictions affording protection based on trademark’s use in commerce, otherwise it only gives the opportunity to third parties to register it before you and prevent you from continuing to use it. Even for those countries where unregistered trademarks are protected you are well advised to register it in order to obtain the best protection.
