Common questions

What is an Office action?
An Office action is a document officially rejecting a trademark registration application. Written by an examiner from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the document outlines the reasons why the application is being rejected and, if applicable, offers a list of additional requirements that must be met for reconsideration.
How long do I have to respond to an Office action?
You typically have six months from the mailing date on the Office action letter. If you have not responded by that time, the application will be abandoned and you will need to start from scratch.
What’s the difference between a nonfinal and final Office action?
A nonfinal Office action raises an issue for the first time. A final Office action is issued if the applicant’s response to the prior Office action failed to address or resolve all of the issues. If you receive a final Office action, your only two options are to comply with the requirements or file an appeal with the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.
