Thank you very much for your patience. Generally, registering a trademark is a relatively simple process. The first thing you need to do is to go to www.uspto.gov and make sure that there isn't already someone else who has registered your specific name. You can also click here to get a copy of the application. The application is called the Trademark Electronic Application System. The system will walk you through. The cost is usually about $275. The only thing that would cause problems is if Bioasis is already taken.

What other questions did you have for me today that I can help you out with:-)?

Hi,
Thank you. I was hoping to have an attorney advise if they see anything that would prevent us from getting the name approved. I am aware of the USPTO site but I know that it is not as simple as your response said sometimes. I wanted legal advise in regards ***** ***** Bioasis was "all systems go" for getting approved. There is Bioasis tm on USPTO but they are not the same classification and there also are businesses online such as Desert Oasis, Refreshing Oasis and Moringa Oasis and some of those may be in the same classification we may want to register in. Thank you for any help.
IP Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

Hi, I'm sorry to disappoint; however, only the USPTO would be able to tell you with 100% certainty whether all systems are go for that name. I can provide you what I think they'll decide if you provide me a link to your trademark and the trademarks that concern you.
