We here at CMLP headquarters are always thinking about ways to improve our Legal Guide in order to make it more useful for you, our readers. As part of this ongoing effort, we recently updated the section on Securing Trademark Rights: Ownership and Federal Registration.
The expanded section provides step-by-step instructions on filing for a federal trademark registration and links to important forms and manuals on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office website, as well as information on maintaining your trademark rights through proper usage.
We hope that you find the expanded section useful. As always, if you have suggested improvements or additions for our Legal Guide, you can contact us. And if you're a journalism or digital media start-up that needs help with trademark issues, check out the Online Media Legal Network.
