Trademark opposition proceedings describe the process of opposing the publishing and registration of the trademark of another party. Trademark opposition procedures most commonly function as a useful tool for trademark owners to understand in order to protect their legal rights and interests. These procedures are also important devices however for potential trademark owners to consider since trademark opposition may sometimes be a major hurdle in the process of establishing ownership to a mark. Our trademark attorneys provide the legal counsel to both draft a trademark opposition and defend against one in order to uphold ownership rights and trademark laws.

Trademark Opposition Proceedings

Trademark opposition proceedings should be considered whenever a client believes that a trademark application bears similarity to their own. A client should also consider trademark opposition proceedings if the registration of a proposed trademark would infringe upon their exclusive rights.

Unlike Trademark Cancellation, Trademark Opposition Proceedings involve preemptive measures to prevent infringement before a trademark has been registered. For this reason, it is important to execute trademark opposition proceedings in a timely manner and before the contested trademark has completed the registration process.
In most cases, a trademark attorney will then personally draft a trademark office action on your behalf and send it to you for your review and approval. This trademark office action will outline the ownership issues of the disputed trademark and will notify the USPTO of these grievances in an effort to prevent the registration of this trademark.
The USPTO review and consider the submitted office action. If accepted, the owner(s) of the disputed trademark will receive an office action notice and be required to make necessary amendments so that the the proposed mark complies with preexisting ownership rights.
