Our trademark attorneys can perform and complete a comprehensive state and federal (including all US territories) trademark search within 3 business days. Once the trademark search is completed, we will provide you with a detailed trademark search report with an analysis of the results. We will then discuss the trademark search results with you over the phone, via video, screen share, or in person. Should the trademark search identify any existing conflicts or legal issues with your trademark that could result in the USPTO examining attorney issuing an office action, we will discuss these conflicts and legal issues with you to determine the best way to move forward with your trademark. In the event you determine to proceed with the registration of your trademark, the federal trademark registration process will generally take between 10-15 months to complete.
It is important to note that Amazon Brand Registry members may enroll using a trademark serial number issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). To enroll in the Amazon Brand Registry, a trademark owner must provide Amazon with their trademark registration number, which is a unique identifier assigned by the USPTO to each registered trademark. This number is typically in the format “Serial No. xxxxxxxx” and can be found on the USPTO trademark record by acceding the Trademark Status and Document Retrieval (TSDR) feature.
By providing your USPTO issued trademark serial number, Amazon can verify that the trademark owner is the rightful owner of the trademark and that it is working its way through the registration process with the USPTO. This helps Amazon to ensure that only authorized brand owners are able to enroll in the Brand Registry and to protect against counterfeit and infringing products being sold on the Amazon platform.
Once the trademark serial number is verified, the trademark owner can enroll in the Amazon Brand Registry, which provides them with access to additional tools and resources to protect their brand on Amazon and improve their product visibility.
