Approved Stamp - Small @100 x 100September 12, 2014

Recently the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) accepted The Trademark Company’s argument in support of registration of Steven Brown’s trademark application for THEMAINTENANCEPRO’S FAST RESPONSIVE RELIABLE and design (U.S. Ser. No. 86085288) approving the trademark for registration on the Principal Register for the USPTO.

By way of history, Mr. Brown applied for the trademark on October 8, 2013 for use in connection with handyman services.  On November 8, 2013 the USPTO refused registration of his application under Section 2(d) of the Trademark Act on the grounds that, if registered, it would create a likelihood of confusion with a prior registered trademark.

Following the refusal, Mr. Brown authorized The Trademark Company to present arguments in support of registration of the trademark application.  As stated above, the USPTO accepted The Trademark Company’s argument in support of registration of the THEMAINTENANCEPRO’S FAST RESPONSIVE RELIABLE and design application.  The trademark is now pending registration before the USPTO.
