Trademark Registration in USA

Advantages of trademark registration in the USA

70% of marketplace sellers face unfair competition, duplicate listings, and trolling.

You can file a complaint and get support from the selling platform only if you have the rights to the TM.

Including a brand in the Amazon Brand Registry provides additional benefits for sellers, but it is only possible on the basis of a valid trademark registration or application for registration.

Many entrepreneurs face the fact that they enter the U.S.A market with a brand (trademark) that is owned by third parties. Claims by rightholders often force rebranding and cause significant costs. A preliminary clearance search  to determine brand availability  in the United States will help you minimize such risks on a budget, and further registration of the trademark with the USPTO will provide protection against unfair actions of competitors as well as basis for obtaining Brand Registry enrollment.
