EasyAnswer - Step 2
Next, we need your responses to each numbered paragraph in the Notice of Opposition.
It's easier than it looks because there are only 4 basic responses you give to any numbered paragraph:
Denied: Use when something is untrue (e.g., your trademark looks like their trademark).
Denied as Phrased: Use when you are unsure whether something is true because of the way it is phrased or if part may be true but other parts are not.
Applicant is without knowledge of the allegation and therefore denies the same: Use when you don't know the answer (e.g., They say they have been using their trademark longer than you have been using yours).
Admitted: Only use when you can easily admit something that is not significant (e.g., your name or address).
As a general rule, if you are unsure about how to answer a specific paragraph use "Denied".
