Approved Stamp - Small @100 x 100September 8, 2014

Recently the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) accepted The Trademark Company’s argument in support of registration of Prem Sagar Dosa Plaza Private Limited’s (“Prem Sagar”) trademark application for DOSA PLAZA (U.S. Ser. No. 86069651) approving the trademark for publication and registration on the Principal Register for the USPTO.

By way of history, Prem Sagar applied to register the trademark on September 19, 2013 for use in connection with multiple services including food preparation for others, hotel, and restaurant services.  On December 30, 2013 the USPTO refused registration of the application under Section 2(e)(1) of the Trademark Act arguing that the trademark was merely descriptive of the services with which it is intended to be used.

Following the refusal, Prem Sagar authorized The Trademark Company to present arguments in support of registration of the trademark application.  As stated above, the USPTO recently accepted The Trademark Company’s argument and the trademark is now pending registration before the USPTO.
