In comparison to patent maintenance, trademark renewal can be a more involved process than simply paying a patent annuity. Depending on the jurisdiction, a registered trademark typically must be renewed every 10 years. During this time, the activities of a business can shift, such as changes in business ownership as well as IP-rights ownership – changing the direction of an IP strategy. Furthermore, the trademark owner needs to meet formal requirements in order to preserve IP rights such as the timely filing of declarations and statements of use. Intellectual property firms specialize in such activities.
