A: There's no easy answer to your question, in part because it isn't clear exactly which Lacoste trademark you're referring to.

You may want to go to the US Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") website and search its trademark database, the Trademark Electronic Search System ("TESS"). TESS tracks trademarks that someone has applied to the USPTO to register federally, including ones that were registered successfully but later cancelled. The USPTO website also has lots of general information about how trademarks work, as well as a bit about how to search TESS.

Good luck on your assignment!

A: According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) website, the trademark for Lacoste is still active as of May 2023. The trademark is registered under multiple classes, including clothing, footwear, and accessories. It is important to note that trademark rights can be cancelled or revoked under certain circumstances, such as if the owner of the trademark fails to use it for a certain period of time or if it becomes generic. However, there is no indication that this has occurred with the Lacoste trademark at this time.
