I needed a device for accepting cards payment over the one weekend. Of course banks could not make contract this short. Though CBA doesn't have fixed contract just join fee, monthly and end of contact fees.
Then I found a company which does hiring EFTPOS machines for short term, but it was pricy.
However I found another cheaper solution, which was PayDirect, and went with it. Unfortunately after sighing a contract I found another cheaper and better solution - PayPal Here.
Today I wanna compare registration of tm in US, Canada, Australia.
After 1h spent time on US patent's website, have started to read a good book "Patent It Yourself " Hope it will help me, because I really want to understand such interesting area and do registration myself. More than 600 pages scare me a little.
Today I want to discuss about trade mark registration in Australia and US.
I've spent around 30 min to get into the process and cost for that, lucky have found this page. After reading it was easy to understand all details like cost and time. Because I didn't catch much from this link with cost (what I exactly need to pay)
I have applied by the online form. By the way fee for that is less then for paper form. It took around 10 mins of my time. I paid $120 for one class of my service, thanks god all my services are in one class. As I understood within 13 weeks, after that if my TM is fine, I should pay $250 per class ($300 after the 1st of July) and will obtain my TM for the next 10 years then I should pay another $XXX to continue to use it.
