Clearance checks are performed by Trademark Island partners prior to filing your trademark application. The purpose of clearance checks is to determine if others have prior and existing rights to the mark.
If pre-existing use of your mark by third parties
is not found, a trademark application will be filed on
your behalf. In addition, you will be provided with an
attorney consultation to discuss your case.
Maintaining your trademark registration includes paying maintenance fees, monitoring unauthorized use of mark by third parties, managing post registration filings to the United States Patent and Trademark Office to show continued use, etc.
