How should I file my trademark application?

When you are ready to go ahead and take the steps to protect your intellectual property, it is important that you are fully prepared for the finances associated with submitting the application. There are many fees associated with this application depending on your situation.

If you are trying to do what you can to save some money when filing your trademark application, it is a good idea to file your application electronically. The processing fee amount for an electronically filed TEAS Regular application is $400.00. If you were to file your trademark registration application on paper you would be required to pay a much higher fee of $600. There are other fees that also may occur if the situation arises. For example, if you lose your certificate of registration and require a new one, you will be required to pay a $100 fee for an electronic version or $200 for a paper certificate. If you wish to petition to cancel your trademark, there is a $400 fee electronically and a $500 fee if done so by paper.

As you can see, there are a variety of fees that are associated with filing a trademark or any other type of intellectual property. Do not make the mistake of starting a process that you cannot afford to finish. There are ways that you may be able to get funding through an organization of some sort who may be willing to pay these hefty fees for you. It is beneficial that you speak with an experienced intellectual property attorney who can help you get started.
