The following information (contained in the linked document below) regarding Trademark and Servicemark basics can assist you in evaluating whether the expense of pursuing a registered mark is appropriate (costs generally range from $1500 to $3500 for a registered mark). Please do not attempt to file for a mark on your own; contact the General Counsel's Office. We can assist you in evaluating the efficacy of registering versus simple usage in commerce absent a registration, and if desirable, facilitate the registration filing with trademark counsel.
