A trademark registration remains in effect as long as the renewal requirements are met and the trademark continues to be used in commerce. Once a trademark is successfully registered, it provides protection for an initial term, which varies by jurisdiction but is typically around 10 years.

Once a trademark is successfully registered, it provides exclusive rights to the trademark owner for the specified goods or services. To maintain the registration, the trademark owner must file renewal applications and pay the required renewal fees within the designated timeframes. By fulfilling these renewal requirements, the trademark registration can be extended indefinitely.
