Well, it took over a year, but I finally received the certificate from my lawyer stating that The Lone Beader® is now registered in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office!
My mark is registered in 2 categories: Art Pictures and Online Art Galleries. The mark consists of standard characters without claim to any particular font, style, size, or color, which means I can add the ® after my signature! Have you registered your trademark yet? =:)
