If your company was an early registrant in the Trademark Clearinghouse, it is likely your registrations had an effective date of November 5, 2014, the date the Clearinghouse went “live.” If so, the deadline to renew one-year registrations is November 5, 2014.

If Sterne Kessler is managing your Clearinghouse registrations on your behalf, you should have already received a notice of this renewal date. Prompt renewal of Trademark Clearinghouse registrations ensures continued access to Sunrise registration periods, and trademark notifications.
