Logos, USPTO Style
This post inspired me to talk a bit about how the USPTO classifies logos.
The USPTO designates six digit coded numbers for each & every logo that's submitted. And, boy, do they get specific. Let's take a look at some examples:
020315: Women wearing scarves on their heads
This logo is registered to Duncan Sutherland who is using this logo in connection with skin care services & products.
Most logos are going to have more than one coding and this mark is no different: 020322, busts of women in profile; 020324, women depicted in caricature form; and, 261101, rectangles.
040525: Other mythological or legendary animals
This interesting logo is owned by Stone Brewing Co. for clothing. Of course, this logo is also coded for beer steins, 110302.
Sam Chiodo owns this logo for concierge services & is also coded with 021107: arms, fingers, hands, etc.; 090312: gloves; 110325: serving trays
By looking at just 3 examples, you can see how detailed the process is when filing for a trademark on your logo.
When having a logo search done, it's absolutely a priority that the correct design codes are searched.
If you've got a logo & are wondering what codes apply to you, let me know, firstname.lastname@example.org
