“From the moment we were introduced to MediSure, we knew this was a brand that had potential to exploit the large U.S. markets with medical devices and new and advanced at-home testing products.” Stated Steven McAuley, Chairman & CEO. “The Medisure team and their brand have proven time and again that they have the ability to bring novel healthcare products to market.
“This U.S. trademark submission signals the beginning of our journey to take the MediSure® brand and the full MediSure® portfolio of products into the U.S.” said Mario Cortis, President of Medisure. “I’m super confident in the capabilities of the MediSure regulatory team to successfully navigate the steps to obtain FDA approvals and commercialize in the USA.”
The application is filed under International Class 044: Medical analysis services for diagnostic and treatment purposes provided by medical laboratories.
The benefits of filing a trademark include:
- Official notice to the public that you own that trademark. Registration provides legal proof of ownership in case you have to prove this in court.
- Trademark protection nationwide, even if you are not currently doing business across the country.
- Ability to be listed in the USPTO database. This is important because when others look for marks for their own brands, they will see that yours is taken.
- Protection from the importation of counterfeit goods by having your trademark on file with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
- Access to the federal courts if you need to file a trademark infringement lawsuit.
- Ability to file for trademark protection in other countries.
