Register a TradeMark in USA by UK company.
I am planning to offer a service worldwide through an internet site. I am thinking of registering the trademark in USA patent office. I was wondering if I can apply for trademark registration as a CEO of the UK company registered through the help of the online company registry agents (I am not UK citizen living outside of UK) ? I mean if I register a company in UK remotely and then apply to the USA patent office using the documents of the registered company? Do you think it is entirely possible?

Registering in countries such as the US, the UK, Japan, etc will protect your mark in that country only, but within the European Union, there now exists a Community Trade Mark (CTM) which covers the mark in all EU countries.

You should probably have a look at the World Intellectual Property Organization's Madrid System. You could consider contacting WIPO, via the details on their web page at The Madrid System - How to contact us. I'd be interested to hear how helpful they are.
