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.

160108: Telephones



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 th…

Logos Hoping to be Trademarked

Using this post as inspiration, I thought I'd take a look at some newly filed logos.



That little guy is Serial Number 77202055 & was filed for "non-downloadable ringtones, pre-recorded music, video and graphics presented to mobile communications devices via a global computer network and wireless networks."

Hmm, um, this next one may be a little NSFW depending on where you work. Considering it's owned by The Filthy Food Company, well, let's just say you can tell where they're going with this logo.


This take on da Vinci's Vitruvian Man was assigned Serial Number 77199434 for "Shirts; Jeans; T-shirts; Sweaters; Jackets; Pants; Hats; Caps; Undergarments; Belts; Socks; Coats"

Don't forget about the month long promotion we're running for our blog readers!
Happy Anniversary TradeMark Express Blog!


On June 2, 2007 we celebrated our blog's 1 year anniversary!

Blog, we've had a roller coaster of a ride but have persevered through it all. Here's to many more years of talking trademarks. *clinks internet glasses*

One of the reasons I missed the actual anniversary date is that we've been busy bees over at TradeMark Express. While our blog's a mere baby, TradeMark Express has been getting trademarks for our clients since 1992.

Keeping up during our busy times can be daunting but this blog is an important facet of what we offer to clients. The actual work is paramount, of course, but making sure clients feel as well informed as possible is so important. It's one thing to help clients get their trademarks; it's a completely better thing to help our clients get their trademarks AND to share our knowledge of what's what.

To commemorate our blog's anniversary, I'd like to offer our readers a $100 discount on our …

Talking to new business owners every day really shows me how alive the creative spirit (as well as funny bones) is in the business world. Checking out new trademark listings accomplishes this too.

Here's just a smidgen of the 1100+ that were filed on June 1st of this year:

Serial Number 77196095, Listen to Your Vegetables & Eat Your Parents - for infant clothing

Check out the logo too. Those are some warped vegetables.

Serial Number 76677705, Hangovers Sports Bar & Grill - for clothing

Shhh, not so loud.

Serial Number 77195398, You Deserve Cupcakes - for baked goods

I couldn't agree more. Everyone deserves cupcakes.
