Q: how much is to get a trademark for a therapy approach?
The cost to trademark a therapy approach involves several fees.
First, the filing fee for a federal trademark application through the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) typically ranges from $250 to $350 per class of goods or services. The cost depends on the filing basis and the number of classes in which you are filing.
If you choose to hire an attorney to assist with the process, their fees will add to the overall cost. Attorney fees vary widely based on their experience and the complexity of your application.
Additionally, if your trademark application is successful, there are maintenance fees to keep the trademark active. These include a Declaration of Use between the 5th and 6th year after registration, and renewal fees every 10 years.
