A Trademark Assignment Recordation is filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to maintain current records of trademark ownership. If you have assigned your trademark to a corporation, LLC or other business entity, or to another person, you should provide the USPTO with the new owner's information by recording your assignment.

A trademark assignment is the transfer of trademark rights from one or more owners of a mark to someone else. These assignments should be in writing--typically accomplished through a contract--to protect all parties and make clear everyone's rights going forward. Assignments can transfer rights in registered trademarks, applications or nonregistered trademarks--but recordation with the USPTO is appropriate only for registered marks and applications.
LegalZoom will need you to provide: (1) your USPTO trademark registration or application number, and (2) a copy of your trademark assignment contract. Your assignment contract should specify the previous and new trademark owners, as well as the trademark(s) being transferred, along with any other significant information regarding the assignment.
Trademark Assignment Recordation allows the USPTO to keep its records current regarding ownership of trademarks. This is important because the USPTO may have reason to contact the owner of a trademark, or another party may as well. If ownership information is not up to date with the USPTO, such contact may be difficult, resulting in significant inconvenience to the mark's current or previous owner(s).
