Welcome to the second call in our 2011 Trademark Teleconference Series. My name is Erik Pelton. I'm here with Mark Donahey. We are of Erik M. Pelton & Associates in Falls Church, Virginia and we are happy to be talking to you today about common trademark application mistakes. Trademark application mistakes are very common among all types of applicants, whether they are individuals, corporations, attorneys who practice a lot in the field trademarks or attorneys who are dabbling in trademarks without a lot of experience. A lot of these mistakes can be easily avoided as you can see and avoiding such mistakes helps your application have a better chance getting approved, a better chance of getting approved quickly, a better chance not losing your filing fees and several other benefits. Before we jump into the rest of the content, I just want to remind everybody that call is being recorded and that nothing presented today should be construed as legal advice. If you have a specific question that relates to your trademarks or to your application, please consult an experienced trademark attorney.
