CAN YOU LOSE YOUR MOST VALUABLE DOMAIN TO A COMPETITOR’S TM FILING? WE ANSWER ANDREW ALLEMANN | Successclick, Domain Monetization

You can file with the USPTO all you want, but it doesn’t mean you have a TM on the name just because you “filed”, or will be given the TM for it. Many companies file for the TM thinking this will scare off competitors, but if they haven’t used the TM phrase publicly, they’re not going to get the TM issued to them.

However, promoting the phrase publicly with the “TM” mark is the first move you need to make to secure your timeline of usage of the TM phrsae in commerce. Like I said, I’m not an atty, but I’ve won three TM contests in the last 25 years using this process as advised by my atty back in the 80′s.
