Do you own a trademark? Watch for these potential scams

by the100companies

If you own a trademark, you may not realize that your filing is a public record. Unfortunately, with greater access to your name, address and registration, there is also a rising trend of scams.

Local attorney Mark Nieds, suggests that you should be leery if you receive correspondence from any entity other than the attorney you originally used to file the trademark.

Common scams may include requesting payment for publication in a directory, monitoring for new trademark filings or filing maintenance paperwork.

While there are legitimate companies that provide these services, official requests should come through your attorney of record.
