Registering a Trademark in the U.S:

Federal trademark registration offers a number of benefits to the trademark owner:

  • the right to use the mark nationwide, except in geographical areas where it is already used by others,
  • the right to bring an infringement lawsuit in federal court to recover damages and other remedies,
  • the mark becoming "incontestable" after five years.
