(1) The name of the person applying for such registration, the residence, location or place of business of the applicant, and, if a corporation, the jurisdiction of incorporation, or, if a partnership, the state in which the partnership is organized and the names of the general partners.

(3) The date when the mark was first used anywhere and the date when it was first used in this Commonwealth by the applicant or the predecessor in interest.
(4) A statement that the applicant is the owner of the mark, that the mark is in use and that to the knowledge of the person verifying the application no other person has registered, either federally or in this Commonwealth, or has the right to use such mark, either in the identical form thereof or in such near resemblance thereto, as to be likely, when applied to the goods or services of such other person, to cause confusion or to cause mistake or to deceive.

(5) Such other information necessary to the administration of this chapter as the department may specify by regulation.
