Securing Your Future Use of a Trademark


Imagine that you come up with a great word, name, symbol, or some combination that you want to use as a trademark. Did you know that as soon as you have a concrete idea as to what products or services you intend to sell using that trademark, you can stake a claim in it by filing an intent-to-use (“ITU”) trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office? This issue of Dunner Law Dicta reviews the

benefits of the ITU filing system and the important requirements that must be met in order to fully take advantage of this form of trademark protection.
