We use the information that you provide on our online application forms to complete and submit the U.S. Copyright Office and / or USPTO form(s) you have selected, or to conduct a trademark search or provide trademark monitoring services. Our review of your application information is limited to completeness, grammar, spelling, consistency, and obvious errors based on the information you provide. We do not review your application for legal sufficiency.
