Extension of a trademark registration for an additional period of time. Unlike copyrights and patents, trademarks can last forever under certain circumstances, but they require maintenance. Once properly registered, trademarks generally need to be renewed by filing a Declaration of Continued Use between the 5th and 6th anniversary date of the filing and again between the ninth and tenth year. After that, renewal is every ten years.
