Goods and Services (TEAS Plus)

MARK: Now you are ready to identify the goods and services associated with your mark.

This section is extremely important and your selection of goods and services must be precise and accurate. Do not simply select a listing that is "close" to your goods and services.

For more information about goods and services and the importance of making the right selection, be sure to click the link to watch the instructional Trademark Information Network video.

To search for your goods and services, simply click the "Add Goods/Services" button.

On the next page, type in the goods and services associated with your mark. For example, "t-shirts." When you are finished, click "Go."

Check the boxes for the appropriate entries and click the "Insert Checked Entries" button.

If one of the entries requires more detail, type the necessary wording into the provided box. For example, if the t-shirts are for babies, type "babies."

Then, click the "Insert Checked Entries" button again to move on to the Filing Basis page.

Remember, the examination of your application is based on your selection, so if you choose the wrong items, your mark may be refused and your application may be abandoned. Inaccuracies may also result in the cancellation of your trademark registration.
