The security interests of trademarks are governed by Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code (PEC). While the lender`s standard guarantee agreement and UCC`s financing statement are sufficient to complete a security interest for common law marks, the reference to the lender`s security interest should also be registered in the USPTO for registered trademarks and registrations in process to protect the lender from bona fide buyers and mortgages. A short-form brand security agreement is recommended when submitting to the USPTO in order to protect the borrower`s privacy and avoid disclosure of the terms of the loan that appear in the traditional security agreement. The trademark security agreement submitted to the USPTO must specifically identify the marks, which is usually achieved by attaching a schedule indicating the trademark, jurisdiction, registration number, date of registration, and holder of the registration. In summary, for registered value marks, a lender should consider continuing to protect its security interests against bona bona fruit buyers and mortgages by filing a trademark security agreement with the USPTO.
