You don’t need an attorney to apply for a trademark. If you’re filing yourself, be informed: first, do a search, and learn the difference between trademarks and service marks, and standard character formats vs. special-form formats.
Learn it all at the USPTO’s Trademark Basics Boot Camp.
This free, eight-part weekly series begins Tuesday, January 10, 2023, from 2 — 3:30 PM ET, with Trademark Fundamentals.
The event is free, but space is limited. Sign up before Jan. 9 at the USPTO’s events page.
The series covers the federal trademark registration process from pre-filing to post-registration. Every session includes a question-and-answer portion and is self-contained, so you can attend the full series or only the modules you’re interested in.
- Definitions and types of trademarks
- Benefits of federal registration
- Selecting a trademark
