TRADEMARK OFFICE ACTIONS
Office Actions Are Part Of The Registration Process
The USPTO reviews every application for compliance with Federal law and USPTO Rules.
If the USPTO decides that an application is not in condition for allowance, it will issue a letter called an Office action. The Office Action will explain every issue the USPTO finds with your application. The USPTO issues an Office action about 65% of the time
An applicant must respond to that Office action within six months after it is mailed. If you fail to timely and properly file a response, the USPTO will declare your application abandoned and end the application process.
Not All Office Actions Are Equal
Some Office actions represent a denial of your application while others merely request clarification or additional information. If you have received an Office Action, we can help you respond – even if we did not file your application.
