After a federal trademark application has been filed, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will either approve the application or send a Trademark Office Action, requiring the applicant to file an office action response in order to proceed. An Office action indicates that the USPTO has rejected the client’s application to register a trademark. The applicant then may proceed to comply with the directives of the Trademark Office Action by filing an Office Action Response, challenge the findings of the USPTO with an Office Action Response, or produce no response and forfeit the chance to receive their trademark. As for the final option, some clients may abandon their trademark application as they find it easier to restart the process altogether rather than pursuing an office action response. In any case, it is importance to consider and explore the grounds and options of an office action response before deciding a final legal route in the trademark registration process.
