One critical component of any application to register a trademark is the identification of goods and services (the “ID”). The ID enumerates the goods and/or services on which, or in connection with which, that trademark is used. Trademark offices in different countries may have different standards as to which sorts of IDs are acceptable for inclusion in an application. As a result, trademark owners who want to obtain protection for the same trademark in multiple countries potentially have to create unique IDs for each of them. To lessen that burden, the USPTO leads an ongoing effort, in cooperation with its counterparts in the Trademark Five or “TM5” forum, including the JPO, to maintain a pre-written “pick list” of IDs (the TM5 ID List) that will be accepted in the trademark offices of numerous countries, including JPO. IDs that are included in the TM5 ID List have a “T” in the TM5 column in the USPTO's Trademark ID Manual.
