WHAT IS AN OFFICE ACTION ?
An office action is an official communication issued by the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office). Within this communication, an examining attorney outlines any legal issues related to your chosen trademark and the application itself. It is necessary to address all these legal concerns mentioned in the office action before your trademark can be successfully registered.
WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF OFFICE ACTION ?
Non Final Office Action & Final Office Action
•In the case of an initial problem, the U.S. Trademark Office will release a non-final office action. This communication outlines the concerns within the application and provides the applicant with a chance to resolve or rectify them.
•Should the applicant be unsuccessful in addressing concerns from a prior office action, a final office action will be issued by the USPTO. Responding to final office actions is subject to more restricted rights.
WHY IS AN OFFICE ACTION ISSUED ?
To guarantee conformity with pertinent laws and regulations, the process verifies the adherence of the trademark application. The examination of trademark applications is conducted by the Trademark Office to ascertain their adherence to registration prerequisites, encompassing:
•Ensuring the uniqueness of the mark, avoiding resemblances to pre-existing trademarks.
•Confirming the mark's distinctiveness, steering clear of descriptiveness or generality.
•Verifying the absence of infringement upon existing trademark rights.
•Appropriately categorizing the goods and services linked to the mark.
•In case the application encounters any discrepancies, an official communication is dispatched by the Trademark Office. This communication notifies the applicant of the issues identified and grants an opportunity to rectify the raised concerns.
WHAT COULD BE POSSIBLE REASON FOR REJECTION ?
1. Technical Deficiencies
•Insufficient identification of goods and services
