Our experienced Trademark Team at Oguz Law is dedicated to guiding you through the international protection application process. We understand the importance of safeguarding your brand assets and ensuring comprehensive coverage across various jurisdictions. Thanks to the Madrid Protocol, the process for securing trademarks is made more efficient, as it allows for a single international application to request protection in various countries, making it both time and cost-effective.

Understanding International Trademark Protection

Expanding your trademark protection beyond domestic borders requires an understanding of international agreements and regulations. Although a federal registration in the United States does not automatically extend to other countries, certain nations recognize it as a basis for trademark registration under international agreements like the Paris Convention and the Madrid Protocol. Through strategic planning and leveraging the provisions of these agreements, we can help you extend the protection granted by a foreign trademark registration into the United States using a Section 66(a) filing basis.

Understanding the Use of the Registered Trademark (®) Symbol

Furthermore, it’s essential to understand the proper usage of trademark symbols. The ® symbol, indicating the registration, should only be used after your mark has been officially registered and should not be utilized during the application process. Additionally, the symbol may only be used in connection with the goods and services listed in the federal registration, ensuring accurate representation and protection of your brand identity.

Cost Considerations and Application Process

When considering the cost of submitting an international trademark application through the USPTO, understanding the fee structure and associated expenses is important. When filing international applications based on a singular U.S. application or registration, a fee of $500.00 per class is required, and the filing should be done online.These fees cover the processing and certification of your international trademark application, ensuring compliance with international standards and regulations.
