Webinar – Filing a Federal Trademark Registration Application: The Basics

March 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Navigating the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) trademark registration process can be confusing, and a minefield for small businesses.  The filing fees are nonrefundable, so getting it right the first time is a must. This webinar will explain how to help you:

    • Obtain a USPTO federal trademark registration, including pre-application considerations
    • Selecting the TEAS or TEAS-Plus application
    • Selecting the 1a (“Use”) or 1b (“Intent to Use”) basis
    • Determining class numbers and descriptions of goods and services
    • Overcoming USPTO “Office Action” correspondence
    • Post-registration maintenance activities.
