We've applied for a trademark on a intent to use basis and seems like almost 6 months have passed, now we have to either ask for an extension (costs $150 and gives us 6 months to submit evidence to it's use) or submit evidence showing it's use in commerce - this is where I am confused since the first trademark is for our organization's name while the second trademark is for the title of our game (still under development - and could take more than 6 months to finish) so what kind of evidence is needed to show our trademark's use in commerce? is a official website good enough? I would rather not keep filing for extensions if at all possible. Konrad The Kotarkh Empire http://www.kotarkh.com http://www.thekotarkhempire.com http://www.kotarkhempire.com

You should be getting your advice from a TM attorney. (Yes, they are expensive, but having survived a TM lawsuit, I can assure you that a TM without good legal advice and representation is like having a house built but skipping the foundation along the way.)

From my experience, I had to show that we were actively engaged in commerce (i.e. using the mark to generate revenue) before our application could go through the final registration process.
