Trademark cancellation proceedings offer a legal mechanism for entrepreneurs or business owners to terminate an existing trademark that may be negatively affecting their legal rights, ownership authority or other personal liberties. Request a quote from one of our trademark attorneys to get an estimate of the cost and fees concerning your particular circumstances.
Trademark cancellation should be considered whenever a client believes that an existing mark: hurts their own trademark rights, interferes with their business operation or the reputation of their brand, or incites unfair competition.
The disputed trademark’s registration date is one of the most important variables for a trademark cancellation date. If this date is less than five years ago, then a client can claim trademark infringement on any grounds. However, after a five year period, only select grounds for infringement are available to the client.
Some extenuating circumstances may make involvement with the TTAB inadvisable, in which case a client may consider entering trademark litigation. These matters are usually more legally complex, but they do have have an important legal advantage in judicial oversight.
