Few people know that when they file a trademark, that's not the end of the story. It is rare that a trademark registration issues without some barrier that needs attention. Getting a registration is a process, not a one-time event. If your trademark is initially refused, you will get one notice in your email, and after that, if you don't respond on time, the trademark goes abandoned. You can avoid this by calendering all of the relevant dates. Attorneys do this. But, it can cost a lot to use special software to track these dates.
Trademark Bank was created by a trademark attorney to function for both attorneys as well as individuals. Trademark Bank is ideal for companies that want to manage their own trademark docket, and for small law firms that don't want to pay $4,000 per year or more for software.
Trademark Bank's calendaring system makes it easy. We take the hassle out by syncing the marks directly with the daily USPTO updates, and then notifying you of any changes. You can select your reminders, and then once you perform a task, you can check a box that its done, or simply wait for the data to update once the USPTO shows that the task was completed.
Give Trademark Bank a try for your trademark docketing and reminders. It is the most affordable docketing system on the market, and we believe it is the easiest to use.
