Hi everybody! I've been reading the USPTO site and the main question I have is between filing for a trademark based on use in commerce or based on intent to use (I had stickers made of the logo I'd like to trademark). If you choose use in commerce you must already be using it, what if after you're using it you're application gets rejected? If you go with intent to use you have to pay an additional $100. when you submit you're Allegation of Use along with images of everything you're trademark is on and only those items are covered by the trademark. Also I read you can put a TM on you're mark to claim it w/o having to file with the USPTO. Can someone tell me if I'm understanding this correctly? Thanks!

It sounds pretty accurate :) Also yes you can use the tm on your sticker before you actually trademark it, you just cant use the R in the circle until its registered.
