Statement of Use
When you file your application on an Intent-to-Use basis, the Trademark Office will not issue a registration until you prove that your mark is in actual use – which you do by filing a Statement of Use (“SOU”). Once the Trademark Office approves your Intent-to-Use application and issues you a Notice of Allowance (“NOA”), you have six (6) months to either prove use and file the SOU or file a request an additional six-month extension of time.
If you have already started using your mark, click on the Statement of Use button below. If you have not yet started using your mark and need additional time, click on the Extension of Time button below.
