Trademark Talk with Erin, Ep. 8:How long does trademark protection last, and how do I maintain my trademark registration?
Episode 8 of Trademark Talk with Erin is now out! In association with Episode 8, we will be discussing how long a trademark lasts and how you can protect your trademark.
The Life of Trademark
Have you ever wondered how long protection for a trademark actually lasts? We know that patents generally last about 20 years, and copyrights usually last the life of the author plus 70 years. But trademarks are unique in the sense that their lifespan may be perpetual. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) specifically states that a “trademark registration may remain in force for potentially unlimited consecutive ten-year periods as long as the owner meets the legal requirements for post-registration maintenance and renewal and timely files all necessary documents.”
Help with Trademarks
As stated earlier, there are various requirements needed to maintain a trademark. Trademark attorneys know the requirements in and out and can help you satisfy the requirements needed to maintain your trademarks.
