No, the trademark registration fee is not a one-time payment. While the exact structure and requirements can vary by jurisdiction, trademark registration fees typically cover the initial application and registration process, granting you exclusive rights to use the trademark for a certain period of time. However, to maintain the validity and protection of your trademark beyond the initial registration period, ongoing fees and maintenance costs are generally required.

After the initial registration, you will likely need to pay renewal fees at regular intervals to keep the trademark registered and in force. The renewal periods can vary depending on the jurisdiction but are often required every 10 years. These renewal fees ensure the continued protection and exclusivity of your trademark rights.
