Register a trademark in a different class.

Register a trademark in a different class.

Different classes of trademarks are used for different purposes.

You can file a trademark in different classes for different purposes. The classes are:

  • Class 1: for use in commerce. This includes words, names and symbols used to identify goods or services sold, offered for sale or distributed on a national market. Examples include: “Coca-Cola” or “McDonald’s.”
  • Class 2: for use in connection with a service mark. A service mark refers to an artistic design that identifies the source of services, such as “Microsoft Windows,” “Apple Macs” or “HELP! I’M STUCK IN A CABLE POLE.” Service marks must be used on labels and advertising materials so consumers will recognize them as being associated with certain products and services (i.e., computers).
  • Class 3: for use in connection with collective marks that identify several entities under common ownership (such as the owners of companies like Google). Collective marks may also include geographic indications such as Champagne being made from grapes grown only within Champagne region France where there is no shortage due to overproduction elsewhere; these types of designations are called Geographical Indications (GI) but they cannot be registered as trademarks themselves since they do not meet requirements set forth by international law governing them

A first use distinction is used for distinguishing products and services from each other in the marketplace.

You can register brand name in a different class of goods or services if you use it as the first use of your mark. If you want to register a mark that has been used before, but not yet registered, then this registration is called an “ex parte” application.

For example:

  • A company wants to register “ABC Company” as its business name. The company has already established itself as an entity with operations throughout California, Texas and New York State (three countries).
  • Another company wants to register “XYZ Bank” as its bank name because it operates in one country only (the United States).

For example, “ABC Company” is a mark because it identifies ABC Company’s products and services. A “diligence report” is a document that you will file with your application for registration, along with the proper filing fee. It contains information about the applicant, including his or her business name and address, registration status (if any), and other facts that are important in making sure that you are not using someone else’s trademark in violation of the law. The diligence report can be used as evidence that you have beenw

A geographical location distinction is used to distinguish a mark as originating in a particular country.

A geographical location distinction is used to distinguish a mark as originating in a particular country.

The following are examples of different ways that you can use this type of trademark:

  • Use “the” before the country name (e.g., “the United States”).
  • Use “from” before the country name (e.g., from Canada).
  • Use “to” before the country name (e.g., for sale in China).

An artwork and design distinction is used to reserve trademark rights in artistic designs.

An artwork and design distinction is used to reserve trademark rights in artistic designs.

An artwork or design is a work of art, including paintings and sculptures made with materials such as clay, plaster, stone and metal. Artistic designs can also include photographs of objects that are intended to be used as trademarks. The application process for registering an artwork will differ depending on whether you wish to register your mark as a design or not.

If you want to register your trademark as an artwork rather than a design then you should use the appropriate filing type (I) instead of class 26 when filing your application with us at IP Australia HQs in Sydney NSW Australia

Step 3: Write the Description of the Product or Service.      In this section, you describe what your product or service is, in a way that’s easy to understand by anyone reading and understand. Remember that you’re writing for people who are not familiar with trademark laws and how they work. Use simple language to describe exactly what you do and don’t sell. Do not try to protect your trademark by attempting to explain how it is different from other similar products. For example, if you sell a restaurant menu, do not write “We don’t sell hamburgers” next to the description of your menu items just because another restaurant sells hamburgers in addition to other kinds of food.

All other classes are applied to marks that are not already categorized in another class by the USPTO.

If you have a mark that has not been registered with the USPTO, it is possible to apply for trademark registration in this class. This may be useful if your mark is only used on a small scale and doesn’t require protection under trademark law.

The second option is applying for an extension of time within which your application must be processed by the USPTO (extension of time). Extensions are granted if there are special circumstances that make it difficult or impossible for you to complete your application within one year, such as delays caused by litigation or other problems.
