Do You Need Word Mark Trademark Application Services?

A word mark protects the actual words, numbers, or characters that make up a trademark. These types of trademarks register the words representing your IP without any claim to their stylization, color, or typography. Accordingly, word marks are sometimes referred to as standard character marks. Those seeking a logo trademark or protection for other visual elements may also need to file a design mark.

Word Mark Trademark Searches and Opinions

A thorough search for existing word marks should be at the top of your priority list. If someone else in your industry has been granted word mark protection for the same words you’re trying to trademark, your application maybe denied. But the buck doesn’t stop there. Aside from exact matches, very close matches to your word mark could also cause a denial. Similar trademarks include anything close in sight, sound, or meaning. You can even have an issue if someone is using an antonym of your name.  Consider which category your IP falls into in the chart below.

International and Domestic Word Mark Trademark Application Filing

The US trademark application process typically takes 9–13 months to complete. Bold Patents can assist you in meeting all the deadlines and requirements. Throughout this timeline, the USPTO may also request additional information regarding your claim. We help inventors and entrepreneurs file timely inquiry responses to keep the application process as brief as possible. If you’re not quite ready to sell your product yet, we can help you file an intent-to-use application to protect your IP until you are. We can also assist with international applications.

Word Mark Trademark Maintenance

Trademarks provide IP protection so long as you continue to use the trademark, but that doesn’t mean you can forget about it once your application has been approved. Bold Patents will ensure that your trademark remains valid. We can submit renewal to provide proof of activity to the USPTO and support your efforts to add or remove goods or services as time goes on.

Infringement Services

Once your word mark trademark application has been approved, Bold Patents can monitor the market for potential infringement. If any issues arise, we can advise you about your options and help seek means of settlement that will keep you out of the courtroom.

Registration Renewal or Revival

If you’ve already filed a word mark trademark application but it’s no longer in use, or it’s been deemed abandoned, there’s no need to start from scratch. Bold Patents can sometimes petition to revive your trademark or renew your registration.
