Maintaining Your Trademark Registration
Once your trademark has been registered by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), you must continue to maintain your rights to the mark and protect your investment. Gibson Law Office can advise you on proper use of your trademark in marketing, product tags, internet use, as well as review your product samples, tags, websites and marketing materials to ensure compliance with trademark law and to ensure that your brand is protected.
Gibson Law office can also assist you with your required maintenance filings between the 5th and 6th anniversary of your trademark as well as the required renewal application between the 9th and 10th year. Keep in mind that failure to file these maintenance documents on time and correctly can result in the cancellation of your registration by the USPTO.
In addition to these USPTO maintenance filings, there are a number of necessary steps to protect your brand. Our enforcement services and brand watch services can aide you in brand protection efforts.
