Additional Notes:

Malama is a fantastic name for a new business in the realm of clothing and footwear, classified under trademark Class 25. It’s a name that evokes a sense of care and well-being, which is exactly what customers seek in their clothing and footwear choices. The term “Malama” has origins in Hawaiian culture, where it means to preserve, protect, and nurture. This association adds a layer of depth and meaning to your brand, suggesting that your products are designed with thoughtfulness and quality in mind. When people buy from Malama, they are not just purchasing an item of clothing or a pair of shoes; they are buying into a lifestyle that values sustainability, care, and protection.

One of the key strengths of the name Malama is its simplicity and memorability. A business thrives when its name is easy to remember and pronounce, making it more likely that customers will recommend it to others. Malama achieves this perfectly. The name rolls off the tongue and has a certain harmony to it, which can be appealing in various marketing campaigns and brand communications.

Moreover, Malama carries a unique and exotic flavor, standing out in a crowded market. It differentiates itself from more generic names, making it more likely to capture the curiosity and interest of potential customers. In the competitive world of clothing and footwear, having a distinctive name is a significant advantage. It instantly sets the brand apart, conveying a unique story and personality that can be leveraged in branding and storytelling efforts.

Another compelling aspect is the positive connotation associated with the name. In an era where consumers are increasingly aware of sustainability and ethical considerations, Malama suggests a brand that is responsible and caring. This aligns with modern consumer values, potentially making the brand more attractive to a younger, more conscientious audience.

Additionally, the inclusion of a domain underscores the readiness and forward-thinking nature of the business. In today’s digital age, an online presence is crucial, and having a domain included can significantly enhance brand credibility and accessibility. It signals that the company is prepared to meet customers wherever they are, whether that’s in-store or online.

Malama isn’t just a business name; it’s a brand promise of quality, care, and responsibility. It’s memorable, distinctive, and aligns perfectly with contemporary values, making it a strong choice for a new venture in the clothing and footwear industry.

Because it’s a fully registered trademark on the Principal Register, you’ll get instant Amazon Brand Registry access without having to worry about Amazon revoking your Brand Registry access later on because of a refusal by the USPTO.

Yes, you can pay in installments! Just add a trademark to your cart and begin the checkout process. Once you've started the checkout process, you can choose to pay in installments using PayPal, Afterpay, or Klarna. We are not yet able to offer Affirm because Affirm considers Communer a "B2B" business type, which Affirm does not currently support.

Any payment option available to you will be visible on the checkout page when you choose a payment method. If you don't see any of these options, then you or the product might not be eligible.

Most of our buyers become the new legal owner of the trademark within three days of paying for it. Shortly after payment is made, Communer generates a trademark assignment agreement for e-signature by both the buyer and seller. When both parties e-sign, the buyer is now the legal owner of the trademark.

As the buyer, you may want to record your assignment with the USPTO. This process does not change the legal owner, but it updates the ownership records in the public trademark database. The assignment recordation process usually takes about one month for the USPTO process, though it can take more like two months if complications arise. Once the assignment recordation process is complete, the USPTO will update the listed owner in its TESS search engine and its TSDR trademark records shortly after.

The buyer can usually file the assignment recordation themselves using the USPTO's Electronic Trademark Assignment System (ETAS) for $40. If you'd prefer to have an attorney to file it on your behalf, our partner firm JPG Legal can file the assignment recordation for $250 including the filing fee for one trademark, plus an additional $50 per trademark for additional trademarks transferred in the same deal. For example, if you bought a name trademark and a logo trademark together and you want to record both assignments, the total cost for record the assignment of both trademarks will be $300 including filing fees.

After you purchase a trademark on Communer, we'll give you next steps on how to have the assignment recorded if you're unsure how to do it on your own.

The seller does not need to file anything.

Most buyers will want to record their trademark assignment with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) after they purchase a trademark on Communer. The assignment recordation process enters the ownership transfer into the public record and updates the trademark's listed owner in the publicly searchable trademark database.

Around half of Communer's buyers are Amazon sellers, so we make the Amazon Brand Registry process as quick and reliable as possible. Our buyers typically gain Amazon Brand Registry access within one week of paying for their trademark.

Once the buyer and seller both e-sign the trademark assignment agreement generated by Communer, the buyer can apply for Amazon Brand Registry using that trademark's registration number. Amazon will send a verification code to the seller, which the seller is then required to forward to the buyer in a timely manner as stated in the assignment agreements we generate.

As long as you apply for Amazon Brand Registry within two weeks of buying your trademark, the seller will not receive their money until you gain Amazon Brand Registry access. This ensures that the seller will do everything possible to give you access to Amazon Brand Registry as soon as possible.

Communer cannot control the actions of Amazon and thus we cannot guarantee that Amazon will grant the buyer Brand Registry access, but all trademarks we sell should be eligible for Amazon Brand Registry as long as they're not on the Supplemental Register. Very few Communer trademarks are on the Supplemental Register (as of this writing, none are). When trademarks are on the Supplemental Register, we warn you of that in the listing.

The vast majority of our trademark buyers are able to get Amazon Brand Registry without recording their trademark assignment with the USPTO. If for some reason you are unable to get Amazon Brand Registry at first, we recommend recording your trademark assignment with the USPTO, which we will give you details on how to do. The USPTO currently takes two business days to process an assignment recordation, plus about 3-7 calendar days to update the public database.

Yes, once you buy a trademark, you are responsible for filing timely renewals. Make sure to track your trademark renewal deadline(s).

For buyers, Communer does not charge any additional fees beyond the purchase price.

For sellers, Communer charges a 15% commission from the sale price. Communer also deducts the payment processing fee for the purchase from the payout to the seller (typically about 3%, occasionally 5-6%).

The seller must also choose how they receive their payout, for payment processing fees may apply as well. The most affordable option is to have us send a check by mail for $1. We can also send the payout by bank transfer, PayPal, or Payoneer.

Communer does not charge any upfront fees for sellers. Go here for more details about selling a trademark on Communer.
