A trademark provides a lot of protection for your company, but it’s also a time-consuming and costly process. Even without a trademark, a business owner can protect their brand.
It can take a long time to register a trademark.
The procedure of registering a trademark can be lengthy; the preparation of your application might take months, and the processing of your application can take up to ten months.
Trademarks can be costly.
The application fee, which is around $225 plus an extra $400 per class of products or services, is nonrefundable. It’s possible that you’ll need to engage an attorney to help you fill out the application and protect your brand once it’s been trademarked.
