What is Trademark objection?

“Objection is a preliminary refusal issued by the trademark examiner after examination of your application. Some common grounds for objection are:

  • Lack of distinctiveness
  • Similarity with pending or registered marks
  • Other reasons are usage of geographical names, international proprietary names, offensive or obscene words as a part of or as a trademark.

How to proceed?

A periodical check on trademark application is very important, as the trademark office has slowly started weaning off the tradition of sending paper correspondences.  This will help you file your response to objection in a timely manner.
Objection is most cases can be overcome by proper representation before the registrar. Instances are there when the trademark office would sustain the objection and in such cases, one should approach the appellate board to appeal against the decision.

Time limit for filing reply?

“A reply needs to be filed with the registrar within a period of 30 days from the date of the issue of the examination report and failing to overcome all the objections raised by the examiner will lead to abandonment of the trademark. The abandonment puts you into the position in which you were before filing the application – meaning, you’ve lost your money spent on filing.”
