Yes, it is possible to seek trademark registration in a different country, such as the UK or Canada, even after 3 or 4 years of registering a trademark in the United States. The fact that you have registered a trademark in the United States does not preclude you from seeking registration in other countries at a later date.

However, it's important to note that trademark laws and requirements vary from country to country. The trademark application process in each country will involve meeting the specific criteria and complying with the procedures set by the respective national trademark office.

Additionally, the registration of a trademark in one country does not automatically grant you protection in other countries. Trademark rights are typically territorial, meaning they are limited to the specific country or region where the trademark is registered.
