How to register a trademark for Electronics


Registering a trademark is a critical step in protecting your brand. It also gives you the right to use the ® symbol and prevents other companies from using your name or logo without permission. Here are the steps to register a trademark for electronics:

Step 1: Conduct a trademark search.

The first step in registering a trademark is to conduct a search of the mark. Conducting a search on the USPTO website, Google and other internet sources, and social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn and even Amazon can help you determine whether or not your proposed mark is available for use.

If you find that your desired trademark has already been registered by someone else (or if it is being used as a domain name or on social media), you may have to select another one. It’s important to note that this initial search doesn’t guarantee that no one else will be able to register your desired mark; however, it can help prevent some potential issues down the line when filing with the USPTO.

Step 2: Submit your application.

You can submit your application at an office of the USPTO or file it online.

An application consists of a trademark application form, a drawing of your mark as it is to be used on or in connection with goods/services, and fee(s). You also have to pay any fees associated with filing under sections 1, 2 or 44 of the Trademark Act.

To complete this step:

  • Fill out an application form (Form 10-12B). The forms are available for free download from the USPTO website; however, you may want to use one from another source if it’s easier for you to understand—for example if you find their layout more usable than theirs.
  • Attach two copies of all published materials that show how others use similar trademarks so that we can make sure yours won’t infringe on someone else’s rights. Submit one copy each of these documents along with payment for our fees within six months after filing your first document (this will happen automatically when we receive them).

Step 3: Receive the USPTO Office Action.

Once you submit your application, the USPTO will send you a letter with the Office Action. This letter will contain instructions on how to respond to the Office Action. The instructions may include a deadline for responding, in which case you must submit your response by this date if you want to have any chance of registering your trademark.

If you fail to respond within the time period allotted by the Office Action, then your application will be rejected and cannot be resubmitted until after one year has passed from when it was first submitted (unless there is some extenuating circumstance).

Step 4: Respond to the Office Action.

When you receive an Office Action, you will have three months to respond to it. You can do this by filing a Request for Extension of Time (RTE) if you need more time than 3 months.

If you feel that the USPTO’s rejection is incorrect, then respond with a Response addressing all of the issues raised in their Office Action. A response must be filed within 6 months from the mailing date on your Notice of Allowance or they may deem your application abandoned and allow someone else to register your mark!

Step 5: Trademark is registered.

  • The trademark is registered by the USPTO.
  • The trademark is published for opposition.
  • The registration lasts 10 years and can be renewed for another 10 years.
