Aston Mills, PA asked in Trademark and Intellectual Property for Pennsylvania

Q: I have a similar logo to meaningful beauty. But it looks like they didn’t renew it. Could I trademark my logo

Meaningful beauty, a skincare company, has a similar logo to my clothing brand Miss Boulevard. It looks like they haven’t renewed their trademark. Is it possible for me to submit my logo as a trademark?

A: If the trademark in question has indeed not been renewed and is considered abandoned, and if your logo is not confusingly similar to other existing trademarks, it may be possible for you to submit your logo as a trademark. Since the businesses operate in different industries, that may reduce the likelihood of confusion, but it's still advisable to conduct a thorough search for potential conflicts. Consulting with an attorney experienced in trademark law can help guide you through the registration process to minimize the risk of objections or oppositions.

A: Please note that the logo you are likely referencing has only gone abandoned in class 005 (for dietary supplements, vitamins, etc). There is still an active registration in class 003 (for skin care products) - Reg No. 5466416.
