Registration process

  1. Once your official Application for U.S. Federal Trademark Registration is electronically submitted, it will automatically be assigned a Serial Number and filing date from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and will generate an U.S.P.T.O official acknowledgment of receipt of you application that will be automatically emailed to you. 
  2. About four-six months after receiving the online application, an USPTO assigned examining attorney determines whether the mark may or may not be registered. If the attorney finds that the mark cannot be registered, he or she issues an "office action" reporting grounds for refusal, and/or requesting necessary corrections to the application. Usually, a 6-month term is given to the applicants, or their representatives to answer to the "office action". If such an answer does not reach the examining attorney within the 6-month term from the date of the "office action", the application undergoes abandonment. Furthermore, if the response to the "office action", although timely, does not fulfill the "office action'" various demands, or does not overcome all of its objections, the examining attorney issues a final refusal. 
  3. In case no corrections to the application are required by the examining attorney, or the response to the "office action" is able to fulfill all of the examining attorney's requests, as well as to overcome all of his/her objections, the USPTO attorney approves the trademark for publication in the Official Gazette and sends a Notice of Publication reporting the publication date.
  4. If the application "filing basis" was "use in commerce", a Registration Certificate is issued after about 12 weeks from the publication date, and as long as no opposition is filed.
  5. If, instead, the mark was published based upon the applicant's statement of bona fide "intent to use" the mark in commerce, the USPTO issues a Notice of Allowance about 12 weeks after publication as long as no opposition was filed. Within 6 months from the Notice of Allowance the applicant either has to use the mark "in commerce" and file a Statement of Use, or  request a 6-month Extension of Time to File a Statement of Use if it has not yet initiated the use of the mark "in commerce". In both cases, if the Statement of Use is filed and approved, the USPTO issues the Registration Certificate.
  6. Registration Certificate is mailed to you by the USPTO.
