Asked in Trademark

Q: I am self publishing books through Amazon and want to put my trademark on my books. Would Class 41 cover me for that?

The imprint on the book is my name, so I am technically the publisher. But I am only providing this service to myself for my own books. Would "410024 publication of books" cover this situation?

A: Well, 041 is a service mark class, which usually implies publication of books for others. And then you would need to submit proper specimens in support of such use. So CL 016 may be more applicable in this case. But I'd prefer to see everything before providing a definitive opinion. Feel free to call or email if you need any further assistance.
