How can I obtain state registration of a trademark?

You can usually obtain the protection of state trademark registration by applying for and paying a fee to the Secretary of State (or comparable office) in the state where you are using the trademark. However, federal registration provides more widespread notice to the public and in some cases, may supercede a filing at the state level. Federal registration also provides for greater benefits.
