A: You definitely need to register your trademark in US in order to protect your logo and business in the US market. You also had better to conduct a trademark search to check if your mark has been used by others in the US. Therefore, you should hire an US attorney to assist you. Many attorneys here offer free consultation. You should contact one of them.
