Trademark Renewal

After registration issues, the owner of record must periodically file certain documents and pay government fees to keep the registration alive. To keep your registration alive, you must file a “Declaration of Use under Section 8” between the fifth and sixth year following registration. In addition, you must file a combined “Declaration of Use and Application for Renewal under Sections 8 and 9” between the ninth and tenth year after registration, and every 10 years thereafter. There is a 6 month grace period to file the renewal forms after the 6th year at an additional cost of $100 per class.

We recommend filing a Declaration of Incontestability under Section 15 in conjunction with the initial maintenance filing. A declaration of incontestability establishes the owner's exclusive right to use the mark with the goods/services.

Failure to renew your registration within the statutory time period will result in the cancellation of the registration.
