Default Logo I created 30 years ago.

Can I legally get a trademark on a drawing and logo I created when I was 12 years old? I am 44 now.

I did show it to many people at many times, for fun, but nobody has ever used it in any business.
I think it now has some great possibilities.

You can still trademark it, as long as nobody else has a similar registered or in-use mark that would conflict with the one you are now registering.

It's good to have a trademark attorney assist if the matter is important to you, or may have commercial implications.

I wish to inform you that you may carry out a Trademark search to see if the logo and drawing are not already under Trademark or very similar to the one under Trademark. The search may be made on the USPTO Website and you may follow the online instructions. If it is not already under Trademark, you may file the application at USPTO and pay the fees. The application may be filed online or offline. Alternatively, you may contact a Trademark attorney and seek guidance.
