Use this to identify design codes for logo designs. It is the only way to search for non-textual graphical elements commonly found in trademarks. Essential when searching for marks that do not include text.
This Guide is primarily intended for applicants for, and holders of, international registrations of marks, as well as officials of the competent administrations of the member States of the Madrid Union.
The Trademark Official Gazette (TMOG) is published each Tuesday and contains descriptive information and a representative drawing for each mark published, along with a list of cancelled and renewed registrations.
Unfortunately, Maine does not have a searchable trademark database. Registered Maine trademarks can be found in the Corporate Name Search Database if the registrant's name (or a part of its name) is known. Remember, registration is optional; not all trademarks belonging to Maine companies will be found in the database.
This information outlines the options available for registering a mark with the State of Maine's Secretary of State.
