Is WTP Trademark Publication Legitimate?

Yes and no. WTP Trademark Publication offers a service – the publication of trademarks in its database. However, publication in the WTP Trademark Publication is not required by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Plus, it is costly.

Many accuse WTP Trademark Publication of attempting to defraud unsuspecting business owners by charging them for “publication” services that are not legally required. Usually, victims receive an official-looking invoice from WTP with language implying that they must pay for these services to protect their trademarks. In reality, these services are unnecessary, and the fees charged by WTP are significantly higher than any legitimately required fees.

The USPTO website lists WTP Trademark Publication on its SCAM ALERT page. Be very careful when dealing with them.
