Unless otherwise indicated, the USA Trademark Registration stated in this quotation refers to trademark registrations in accordance with the Lanham Act. All fees in this quotation are valid until 30 September 2023.

The legal basis of the USA's trademark is the Lanham Act. The USA is a member of the Paris Convention and the Madrid Union. The USA adopts first-to-file basis for trademark protection. Trademark registration is valid for 10 years from the date of registration and could be renewed for 10 years before the expiry date.

A trademark application filed at the USPTO is based on Use in Commerce, Intent to Use or foreign application under certain international agreements. If a mark is not currently being used in business and it has not been registered in the home country where the proprietor is resided, the application will be filed on the basis of Intent to Use. In this case, a Statement of Use will need to be filed with the USPTO within 6 months once receiving a Notice of Allowance from the USPTO (this usually occurs about 10 to 18 months after filing).

The USPTO will issue e-Certificate of Registration for the registrations from 24th May 2022. Besides, trademark owner must file the Declaration of Use (DAU) and/or Extension of Time to file DAU between the 5th and 6th years upon the registration date to maintain the effectiveness (the official fee and our services fee will be incurred).
