How long does trademark registration last?

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

As long as a trademark is officially registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the rights granted to it can potentially last an indefinite amount of time. However, certain requirements need to be followed for this to occur. The owner of a trademark must maintain active use of it for the goods and/or services it was registered to cover, as they were outlined in the previously submitted filings to the USPTO office. The owner must also continually renew the trademark registration by periodically filing Affidavits of Continued Use or Excusable Nonuse and Applications for Renewal.
