Short Form Patent Security Agreement

The cost of registering IP KURZform security agreements can change regularly, so it`s best to check current pricing plans before registering an agreement. The current patent and trademark pricing plan is available on the USPTO website under the “Office of Finance” (www.uspto.gov/about/offices/cfo/finance/fees.jsp) section and the current copyright pricing plan is available by clicking on the homepage of the USCO website (www.copyright.gov/docs/fees.html). Trademark security interests are governed by Article 9 of the Single Code of Commerce (UCC). While the standard security agreement for lenders and the UCC financing statement are sufficient to enhance a security interest for common law trademarks, disclosure regarding the lender`s security interest should also be recorded in the USPTO for registered trademarks and returns to protect the lender from good faith buyers and mortgages. A short-form brand guarantee agreement is recommended when submitted to the USPTO to protect the borrower`s privacy and avoid the terms of the loan under the traditional security agreement. The trademark warranty agreement submitted to the USPTO must explicitly identify the trademarks, which is usually obtained by adding the calendar of the trademark, jurisdiction, registration number, registration date and registration holder. The trademark warranty agreement and brand calendar can be downloaded electronically to the USPTO. Using the automated process automatically creates a form known as the Trademark Assignment Cover Sheet that requires payment of the registration fee. It should be noted that the USPTO does not review the requests, so the content is the responsibility of the notifying party.

Deposit fees are based on the number of trademarks, with $40.00 for the first mark, $25.00 for the second and each other mark in the same document. In the case of financing transactions such as loans or securitizations, lenders will generally take over a loan on the borrower`s assets, which are in wages, including all U.S. intellectual property assets (“U.S. IP”), against compliance with the borrower`s obligations under the loan contract and security documentation. As was said in a previous article, A secured creditor should submit a UCC-1 financing statement to the state in which the debtor is headquartered or executive office, if it has more than one head office, and (ii) sign a short-term security agreement with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and/or the U.S. Copyright Office (USCO) to enhance the U.S. Securities and Exchange Office.` We often receive questions about the costs of registering these short-form IP security agreements.
