1011.02    One Mark Per Application

If the foreign application or registration covers a series of distinct marks, the applicant must file separate applications in the United States to register each of the marks the applicant wishes to register in the United States.  For example, some countries permit registration of several versions of a mark in a single application.  In the United States, separate applications are required.  The drawing in the U.S. application must show only one mark, which must be a substantially exact representation of one of the marks in the foreign registration. 37 C.F.R. §2.52; TMEP §§807.01, 807.12(b), 1011.01.
