What is Amazon Brand Registry?
Amazon’s Brand Registry program allows approved brand owners to be on file with Amazon as trademarked brands. This allows brand owners to gain access to Amazon services that are unavailable to unregistered brands or resellers.
To become an approved brand owner of the Brand Registry program, United States-based brands must file an application to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. This may take several months to be completed. It is recommended that you retain the services of a lawyer for this process.
However, there is also an alternation method that reduces this wait time. You can connect with an Amazon partnered intellectual property attorney with the Amazon IP Accelerator services. With the assistance of your attorney, you will file for the trademark and have your products approved for Brand Registry with a pending trademark application.
