Trademark Statement of Use and Declaration of (Continued) Use
If you filed a Trademark Application as an Intent to Use Application, eventually you’re going to have to file a Statement of Use. It’s simply just an affidavit that says, “Hey, I’m using the mark in commerce,” and you submit a sample of that mark being used in commerce and associated with the goods and services you identified in your application.
Now, sometimes people will confuse a Statement of Use with an Affidavit of Continued Use, which is another thing, and that occurs after your application is actually registered, and that has to be submitted at the 5th and then every 10th year following registration.
So, the Statement of Use is something that we file and help prepare for you. If it’s prepared and filed incorrectly, there are penalties that could accrue. So, if you’re at the stage of getting a Statement of Use on file, if you’ve gotten the letter from the Trademark Office that says that’s what you need to do, we’re here to help you with that.
