It’s mine! All mine!

Exciting day for this wedding rebel. The term Wedding Rebellion has been approved for Trademark from the US Patent and Trademark office!

For those interested in pursuing a Trademark, I won’t lie, it was a long process. To ensure you are filing right (TM vs Copyright vs Patent) there are many articles and videos to check out (http://www.uspto.gov/). Once you decide which to file, you read and watch more videos on how to file the paperwork. The videos are fairly amusing and incredibly helpful.

After completing the extensive online forms, you make a payment and pick your nose for 6-10 months. They will call you eventually to inform you if your request is approved, amended or denied. Mine was amended. I will get the TM, but will have to include a disclosure stating I do not own the word wedding. I can deal with that.

Here’s to rebelling!
