Frequently asked questions
It’s pretty simple.
A procedural office action only contains easy-to-fix issues like submitting a new specimen or fixing an identification of goods or services.
A refusal is more complicated, such your trademark is too similar to another trademark already registered, and even a proper response may not guarantee registration.
It depends. If your trademark is very similar (e.g., NIKE vs. NIKEE) when used with similar goods (e.g., both used for shoes) then probably not.
In general, it’s a sliding scale. The more similar the trademarks are as well as how similar the goods are services are the more likely your trademark will be rejected. Alternatively, if they are not that similar or the goods or services are not similar you can probably get it registered.
Our Procedural Response is $199. This will handle all simple issues such as:
Our Refusal Response for $399 handles situations where the USPTO has refused registration because, in the USPTO’s opinion, your trademark is too similar to another trademark or perhaps because it is descriptive. Of note, our Refusal Response includes any procedural issues with your application as well.
Finally, our Attorney-led Response with our Legal Advantage Platinum plan is $599. This option is great for when your trademark needs a little extra TLC to get it through the process. It comes with an attorney’s review of your office action, advice as to how to respond, and the preparation and filing of the response by your plan attorney addressing all issues raised by the USPTO.
Of note, these costs are often tax-deductible.
