A US Trademark Search Will Save You Money
If you are launching your product soon or if you have already launched your product, it’s important to get a trademark clearance search. How would you feel if you got sued more than two years after launching you product on Amazon or creating labels for thousands of products?
Apply to Register a Trademark Before Launching a Product
It is usually better to apply for a trademark registration before you start using it, so you can avoid trademark litigation and beat front runners who beat you to the trademark office.
A US trademark application, based on “Intent to Use” or ITU, is the easiest to file, because you don’t include any specimens to prove your use of a trademark. A USPTO examiner will usually report back within 3 to 4 months on whether the trademark is available. If nobody opposes your application, you can have a notice of allowance within 6 months.
Oppositions of trademark applications based on use often end up in a Federal Court and cost 10x what a TTAB opposition would of cost.
