CLASS AND CLASSIFICATION
Products ("goods") and services are organized by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) according to specific categories, or "classes." If you wish to use a trademark to cover more than a single product or service, and those products or services fall into more than a single class (for example, motorcycles and clothing) additional fees are required for each additional class. The USPTO numbers its classes, and each number corresponds to a named category, as below.
Please note that the terms in the class headings or short titles of the classes are generally too broad to be used alone as your actual description of products or services. Also, an international class number alone is never an acceptable listing.
