PLEASE NOTE: "IN USE" means that you have made good faith or bona fide uses of your trademark in the ordinary course of trade. One time use is not enough, however. As for "INTENT TO USE" that means that although you have not yet used the mark, you intend to do so in the future. In this situation, you may file based on a good faith or bona fide intent to use the mark in commerce. While you do not have to used the mark before filing the application, you MUST begin actually using the mark in commerce AFTER filing the application based on "INTENT TO USE." Before the USPTO will register the mark, you must file another form known as "ALLEGATION OF USE" to establish that use has begun. Then you must keep using the mark and file a "STATEMENT OF USE" within 3 years of of the date the "NOTICE OF ALLOWANCE" issues. Otherwise, the USPTO will NOT register a mark, if after 3 years or 36 months of the mailing date of the "NOTICE OF ALLOWANCE," no "STATEMENT OF USE" has been filed.
