Trademark Renewal

Trademark renewal in trademark law refers to the process of renewing the registration of a trademark after its initial registration period has expired. In most countries, including the United States, Canada, and the European Union, a trademark registration is initially valid for a period of 10 years, and can be renewed for additional 10-year periods as long as the trademark owner continues to use the trademark in commerce and meets the renewal requirements.

The renewal process typically involves filing a renewal application with the relevant trademark office and paying the renewal fee. The renewal application should include information about the trademark, such as the registration number, the goods and services for which the trademark is registered, and any changes to the ownership or use of the trademark since its initial registration.
