  2. Thanks, Bret. Generally, trademark owners believe that they only need to get a trademark assignment recordation, when there is a transfer of ownership. As I have listed in this trademark assignment topic, there are many non-routine situations, where an assignment may be recorded at USPTO. To give public notice about the rights in a trademark, it is a good practice to record trademark owner rights with an assignment filing at USPTO.
