Hi, my name isXXXXX going to try and help.
The link is not working. What is the name of the trademark?
Well, the uspto site is down right now. I think the link is fine.
k. I haven't filled the trademark. I want to file a DBA and I found that Buzzmeter is a trademark
Regardless, as long as the trademark is not active, you can use it as a DBA. You may want to register the mark yourself.
But the website of UPSTO says that it is abandoned
The old owner can still reactivate the mark unless you do it first.
Does it means that I could use it as a DBA ?
Just that one caveat....if the old owner reactivates it. It is best to apply for it yourself.
ohk. What is generally the fees for filling a trademark
If you do it yourself, between 250 and 350 depending on if you get expedited application.
My business is not doing very well.. we are rebrading ourselves with whatever we could do as a last attempt.
What would you recommend in such a situation ?
What type of business are you in?
We have customers but are exoense is exceeding the business we have as of now
Our Indian counter part is doing very well on the contrary
We also do B2B
It is a tough business with the democratization of technology. Rebranding is hit or miss.
in such a situation would you suggest to file the trademark in near future or should I wait to see the results
Maybe look for partners.
yes.. I understand. That is why a hitch
hmm sounds good.. but is it really that easy
If you are going to invest time and money in the rebrand, best to get that application started so someone doesnt come along and thwart your efforts.
Easy is relative...I think it depends on the relationships you have.
I ll get the trademark done.
yes. That's right.. But hopefully this rebranding thing works for us.. As our existing customers have loved our work n we have got a lot refferal
Any other concerns you would like to address?
Thank you for advice and time. Its very helpful
Any thing you would recommed ?
Not that I can think of other than applying for the mark.
You have anything else?
k perfect sounds good.
