A Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use is required by the USPTO to demonstrate that you are currently using your trademark in commerce or have a valid excuse for not using it. If 5 years have passed since you registered your trademark, you need to submit a Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use to maintain ownership of your trademark. LegalZoom can help you quickly prepare and file a Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use with the USPTO. Here's how it works.
