What Are Trademark Requirements?
Trademark requirements include details such as contact information and product description information that you must provide when you apply for a trademark. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) reviews trademark applications. This agency uses information you provide on a trademark application to decide whether to grant you a federally registered trademark for your invention or product.
To get a trademark, you need to meet the following six requirements:
Provide your name and address as owner of the trademark.
State the entity type (individual or corporation) and your national citizenship.
Demonstrate actual use or a real intent to use the trademark in commerce.
Give a detailed description of the product being trademarked.

Vibrant and eye-catching colors can produce certain visual effects. Some colors grab the audience's attention right away. Some can make text easier to read.

- To qualify a generic mark for a trademark, it needs to describe qualities, characteristics, or ingredients of the good your bu
