Intent to Use Trademark

What Is an Intent to Use Trademark?

An intent to use (ITU) trademark application shows a company's intent to use a trademark before actually putting it into use. The company must then put the mark into actual use within six months of the issuance of a Notice of Allowance.

Under Section 1(b) of the Lanham Act, there are two types of trademark applications that can be submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). They are intent to use (ITU) and statement of use (SOU).

The advantage of the ITU is that the filing date serves as the first date of the use of the mark. This assumes that the applicant puts the mark into actual use and completes the application process within six months. This status and indication of intent is regulated by §1(b) of the Trademark Act, 15 U.S.C. §1051(

What Is Trademark Protection?

Trademark protection refers to safeguarding intellectual property rights to protect a trademark from counterfeiting and infringement. A trademark is an established or legally registered mark that identifies a manufacturer's unique goods and services. The owner of a distinctive mark can apply to receive trademark protection.
