No matter how thorough or developed your trademark is, there still may be a significant gap in time between filing and registering your trademark. As a result, you might wonder if that trademark offers any protection between filing and registration.
In other words, do you get any benefit before your trademark actually gets registered?
And the answer to this question is: Yes, there are benefits to trademarking your brand as early as possible. You can rest assured that trademarks are still working with you in between filing and registering.
As soon as you apply for a trademark, it will get assigned a filing number and a date. And even though nobody is actually examining your trademark application - nobody is actually looking at it yet - it already has a date and it already has a number. Generally, the earlier that date, the better. Allow me to elaborate.
