Frequently asked questions
If registering your trademark with the USPTO (Federal Trademark) if your trademark is very similar (e.g., NIKE vs. NIKEE) when used with similar goods (e.g., both used for shoes) then probably not. In general, at the USPTO it’s a sliding scale. The more similar the trademarks are as well as how similar the goods are services are the more likely your trademark will be rejected. Alternatively, if they are not that similar or the goods or services are not similar you can probably get it registered.
If registering your trademark on the public digital register (eTrademark) the existence of another similar trademark will not block the registration of your trademark. To learn more about our eTrademark service Click Here.
Most people start with their company name such as NIKE, product lines like AIR JORDAN or TIGER WOODS, and even their logos such as Nike’s famous swoosh design and tag lines or slogans such as JUST DO IT. In short, the more you register the more you protect!
A Direct-Hit search, included in our InstaFile Basic, is a great search that lets you know whether there is an identical trademark out there that will block the registration of your trademark. It’s a great, cost-effective search (and package) to get you started when you’re on a budget.
But as you should be aware, sometimes even a similar trademark can block yours from registering. That’s why we offer our expanded Federal Search included in our InstaFile Standard to go deeper and uncover similar trademarks that could block the registration of your trademark. Our InstaFile Standard is our most popular package and well worth the additional cost.
Finally, our Comprehensive Search, included with our InstaFile Platinum, is the granddaddy of them all. Not only does it look out for similar trademarks, but it will also will let you know if your trademark could get rejected for other reasons. If it’s in your budget, it’s our best package to guarantee the registration of your trademark!
Understand that the USPTO charges per class for Federal Trademarks. There is no government fee or fee per class for an eTrademark. Keep this in mind when deciding between a Federal Trademark and an eTrademark.
In general, when filing a Federal Trademark with the USPTO you should register your trademark in the class or classes in which your goods or services are or will be provided. For instance, if you will use your trademark for shoes, that would be Class 25. But if you are also going to use for retail store services that would be in Class 35. Oh, and don’t worry. We can help you figure out what class or classes your goods or services fall in to. The USPTO has an online tool we use that allows us to do this for you. Just tell us what you use your trademark with and we can tell you what they say.
For our Federal Trademark packages with the USPTO, we’ll get it on file for you that same day if not the next day. However, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office is not as efficient as we are. So from start to finish, the average time to registration is about 11 months. And don’t worry, we know what you’re thinking. I can’t wait that long! So here’s a little good news. You don’t have to. You’re allowed to use your trademark as soon as you like. Ask your Account Manager and they can explain more.
If you want protection with the USPTO with a Federal Trademark there is always a chance your trademark will be rejected. The chances tend to be less with our Standard and Platinum Packages as their searches are a little more comprehensive. But no matter what, if it happens we will be with you every step of the way with options to get past the refusal.
However, your trademark will not be rejected and is guaranteed to register with our new eTrademark!!!
