Section 9 Trademark Renewal FAQs

What is the deadline for filing my Trademark Renewal?
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) requires Trademark Renewal filings between the between the 9-year and 10-year anniversaries of the original trademark registration and each successive ten-year period thereafter.

The USPTO allows a 6-month grace period following the expiration date of your trademark registration, during which time you can file your Trademark Renewal with additional fees. After the grace period, the USPTO will consider the trademark abandoned. Trademarks are infinitely renewable, provided Section 9 Renewals continue to be timely filed by the trademark's owner.
