Federal Registration of a trademark provides constructive notice that the mark is in use and that the owner is entitled to use the mark throughout the United States for the goods and/or services described in the registration. Federal Registration of a trademark can last indefinitely if properly renewed.

There are two types of applications:
  1. “Use-based” applications
  2. “Intent-to-use” applications
A use-based application is utilized when the applicant is using the mark in interstate commerce. An intent-to-use application is used when the applicant has not used the mark in interstate commerce but intends to use the mark and wants to reserve it for use in the future.
