Advantages of Registration

Registering your trademark provides you and your business with several advantages including:

  • presumption of exclusive ownership rights;
  • constructive notice of your exclusive right to use the trademark throughout the United States;
  • the right to use the federal registration symbol, “®”;
  • registration becomes incontestable after five years;
  • basis for registration in foreign countries;
  • right to prevent importation of infringing foreign goods;
  • right to sue in federal court; and
  • right to recover your attorneys’ fees.

The trademark registration process can be confusing as well as deceptively simple.

There are many twists and turns that can serve as traps for the unwary and jeopardize the application.
