Trademark International Classes

Trademarks are filed in International Classes. That is, an International Class is designated for each type of goods. If you are using a mark for multiple types of goods, a fee must be paid for each International Class. Thus, if your trademark is used for apparel - that's one Class and one fee. If it's for Apparel and a food item - that may be two or three Classes.

For your convenience, the International Classes are listed here below. Trademarks are placed into classes 1-35, service marks in classes 36-45.
