Transferring Ownership of a Trademark

Complete a trademark assignment agreement and registered trademark transfer of ownership in three easy steps.

1. Create Assigning Document

After answering a straightforward questionnaire, your information populates a trademark assignment agreement that clearly denotes the assignor, assignee, specific rights being transferred, and any relevant trademark information.

2. Execute the Assignment

We’ll make sure the document gets to both the original owner and new owner of the trademark. Our specialists review the document for completeness before its signed.

3. Record with the USPTO

Once the trademark assignment agreement is signed, we’ll make sure it’s recorded with the US Patent and Trademark Office. Assignment recordation is not required, and there is a fee involved, but it’s strongly recommended to protect the transfer of ownership from subsequent purchasers or licensees.

What is a trademark assignment?

A trademark assignment agreement is a document that formally sets down the transfer of ownership of a trademark or service mark from its current owner (assignor) to a new owner (assignee). It’s one of several legal documents that go through the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

What is the difference between a trademark license and a trademark assignment?

A trademark assignment refers to transferring ownership of a trademark registration from one party to another. A trademark license or license agreement is a legal document that gives a third party a few restricted rights to use a given trademark. The original owner retains full rights.

Can I cancel a trademark assignment recordation?

If the USPTO hasn’t recorded the assignment, you can contact their Assignment Recordation Branch and possibly suspend the recordation. You’ll have two days to submit a written letter requesting cancellation.

If the USPTO has recorded the assignment, it can’t be canceled. You must follow the steps outlined in the USPTO’s Trademark Manual of Examining Procedure Section 503.06.

How do I submit a trademark assignment to the USPTO?

Trademark Engine can help you submit all the necessary forms for trademark assignment and transfer. Answer a few questions and pay $99 + USPTO fees.

Alternatively, the USPTO offers a Recordation Form Cover Sheet if you wish to submit your information via mail.

How long does a trademark assignment or transfer take?

The time it takes for the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to post a transfer of assignment can vary. Generally, it takes several weeks for the USPTO to process and record the assignment, although it’s possible for the process to take up to several months.
