A: A trademark can be registered with the US Patent and Trademark Office, with any of the states, or with foreign countries. You can easily check the databases of any of those to find out if it has been registered. But there is no requirement to register a trademark. Many famous trademarks have not been registered. And even if a trademark is not registered, it still has legal protection under federal and state law, and an infringer can be held liable. So finding out that a trademark has been registered, is no guarantee that it can be used. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local attorney who handles trademarks who can review your intended use, search the appropriate data bases, review search results, and advise you.
