The cost of trademark registration
Now, as to the cost of a trademark registration, they’re not too expensive. You have to pay a fee to the government, which at the moment is $325 in most cases. That’s for registering one trademark for one class of goods or services. If you have a much broader product range, then you may have to pay additional fees. Your attorney is probably going to charge you about another $1,000 or $1,500 to do an initial search to make sure there are no obstacles to registration and then to file the reg- — file the application and to shepherd it through the Trademark Office to deal with any small changes or problems that come up, because the Trademark Office will do an examination. They’ll consider whether your mark is the type of mark that will distinguish your products or services from other — other people’s and whether it is too similar to existing marks already on their register.
