Texas Business and Commerce Code
Sec. § 16.062
Recording of Other Instruments


A certificate of the registrant or applicant effecting a name change of the person to whom the mark was issued or for whom an application was filed may be recorded with the secretary of state by paying a recording fee to the secretary of state.


Other properly executed written instruments that relate to a mark registered or an application pending with the secretary of state under this chapter, including a license, security interest, or mortgage, may be recorded with the secretary of state, at the secretary of state’s discretion.


An acknowledgment is prima facie evidence of the execution of an instrument other than an assignment under this section, and when recorded by the secretary of state, the record is prima facie evidence of execution.


The secretary of state must accept for recording a copy of an original instrument under this section if the copy is certified to be a true copy by any party to the transaction or the party’s successor.
