    Question about the 'specimen image" for Trademark

    Hey,

    I read over the TEAS and if you select Use in Commerce, you have to supply a "specimen," image to show proof of the trademark being used. Can this be like a screenshot of an advertisement online? Or of our website? The examples mentioned mainly printed material, but we are exclusively online, so that's where all of our advertisements are. Would screencaps be sufficient for the specimen?

    Thanks.

    Only way to find out is to call the PTO and ask them, since they will be the one accepting or denying it.

    That's the reason there are lawyers that specifically specialize in Trademark law.

    How about printing your trademark on the appropriate product and using that?

    (i.e. they print "Drink Coke" on coke cans, etc)
