What is the typical cost we’re getting right to the money here uh what’s the cost to get a trademark created for a new product if the trademark is already in use and will not be accepted by the federal framework office is there a cost associated with that yeah no refunds at the USPTO you know no Uncle Sam does not give you your money back and you have an unsuccessful trademark application so yeah the typical cost for a trademark application is 250 dollars per class basically there’s 45 classes of goods and services everything from apparel to nfts to Legal Services to online retail store Services falls into one of these 45 classes and um a lot of times clients are going to be in multiple classes you know and that can be one application could be a word Mark another could be a design Market protect a logo you can have classes for word marks and design marks so a lot of times clients are in one or two classes and sometimes they’re in five or six so each of those applications is 250 in government fees it gets more complicated if you’re not in the marketplace yet but you’re going to be in the marketplace because then you have to file the application for 250 per trademark class and then when you go to market you have to file what’s called a statement of use or an accusation of use depending on where you are in the examination process and that’s another 100 per class
