Q: I'm interested in acquiring a trademark for a piece of media I'm working on, how would I go about this?
The name of said media is 'Dreams of Fear' and I was just curios about the entire process of registering a trademark. I've looked into it a little bit before, but nothing too serious. Now the project is beginning to develop some serious steam and I want to cover myself before it's too late or gets too close to release. Any info in terms of the process, time frame, price, and more would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
A: An attorney would need to do a strategy call to be able to best tell you what can be done. It depends on the type of media, the use, etc. Feel free to call or email me to discus further.
A: An attorney will need to search the federal registry and optionally some of the states registries to determine if the trademark you wish to use is available. If the trademark is available, then the attorney can file an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. You can give me a call if you require more information or wish to discuss further.
