A trademark is valid for a limited period of time — it varies from 7 to 20 years, depending on a country. After the period, the trademark should be renewed and it can be renewed for as many times as you wish.
The oldest active trademark was registered in 1876 and is in use since the date, what means that the mark exists for 141 years.
