How to Register a Trademark in Alaska


Registering a trademark in Alaska is an important step to protecting your business. A trademark can help you protect your brand from being confused with the brands of others and can also provide consumers with assurance that they are purchasing products or services from a company that owns a specific mark.

Search for Similar Trademarks

To find out if the trademark you wish to register is available, you will have to check the USPTO database. You can do this by submitting a search query that contains your proposed mark and narrowing down your results by entering more information about your brand.

Once you have narrowed down your search results, it’s time to check whether or not any other party has already registered a trademark containing one of these words as part of their company name. If there are competing marks, then proceed with caution because someone else may own rights over those particular words or phrases and could oppose your registration request or even sue for infringement if they feel like it. If all seems clear in terms of who owns what trademarks within Alaska, then proceed!

File your Trademark with APTO

To register a trademark in Alaska, file it with the Alaska Patent and Trademark Office (APTO). The APTO will then forward your application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for review.

Each of these steps requires payment of fees as well as filling out forms that vary depending on whether or not you also want protection in other states or countries.

Pay the Required Fees

The fees for filing a trademark application in Alaska are:

  • Filing fee: $250
  • Search fee: $200 (applicants are required to pay this fee if the USPTO searches the proposed mark)
  • Application fee: $400 (includes one class of goods or services)

If you want to maintain your trademark, you must pay an annual maintenance fee of $400 every year after you receive a certificate of registration. If you don’t renew your trademark registration, it will expire.

Receive Trademark Registration Certificate

Once you have received your certificate, it is important to keep it safe. You will need this document in order to file a trademark infringement lawsuit against someone who is using similar or identical marks on products or services. If you would prefer not to keep your certificate at home, you can always store it in a safety deposit box at the bank where your company has an account. You can also request that the APTO send out an additional copy of the certificate with a seal and signature as well as instructions on how to download a digital copy online.

Your trademark registration will be valid for 10 years from when you filed your application with the APTO unless another extension is granted by them after expiration (more on extensions later).
