Question: Do I have to file my company trademark separate from the patent of my product?
I am submitting an application for a design patent of a product and am wondering if the trademark of the name that is available, as I've confirmed through the USPTO, needs to be submitted independent of the patent I'm applying to for my product.
Or, will the USPTO consider the trademark along with the patent I'm applying for under the application and the fee I'm submitting.
Answer: Yes, your patent application and trademark application need to be separate. They also have different requirements for information to be submitted.
