MOTHERLODE Trademark registered with the USPTO

After a period of about 10 months our patent trademark application for MOTHERLODE has both completed and registration number issued. This one was interesting as we had incorporated Mother Lode wines in NC a couple years ago and had the logo designed only to discover that the trademark was already filled by another company. We decided to keep an eye on it as they had filed a couple extensions and not submitted proof in commerce in order to get the mark registered. Once they let their last extension expire we immediately filled our own application. Patience and diligence finally ended up paying off for us on this one.

Trademarks for FINE officially registered with the USPTO

After a period of about 10 months our two patent trademark applications for FINE have both been completed and registration numbers issued. For complete brand protection we filed one patent for just the word FINE and another with FINE in a logo format. We still find it pretty amazing that no one else had previously sought this as a brand, but here is to entrepreneurship in america.
