Overcoming a 2(d) Refusal to Register a Trademark

If you already attempted to register a trademark or service mark on your own, and you received a 2(d) refusal from the USPTO examining attorney, we may be able to help!

A 2(d) refusal is normally issued to a trademark registration applicant when the examining attorney determines that there is a likelihood of confusion between the applied for mark (your mark) and a pre-existing trademark that is already registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. However, a 2(d) refusal is not necessarily the end of the road for your trademark application. Call us today and let’s discuss the merits of your application. We can help you determine if there are any counter-arguments that can be made on your behalf to persuade the examining attorney to allow your trademar or service mark to be registered with the USPTO.

Responding to Cease and Desist Letters

Did you receive a cease and desist letter to stop using a trademark that you thought you owned the rights to? Not sure what to do?

A well drafted cease and desist letter can be intimitating, even frightening, for a non-legal individual. While at times a cease and desist letter is proper and the claims of the sender are accurate, sometimes they are just scare tactics written to scare you into discontinuing your rightful use of the disputed trademark or service mark.

If you have received a cease and desist letter and you’re not sure about your rights, don’t jump to conclusions, talk to an expeirenced legal advisor first. Call us right now to schedule an appointment and let us review the merits of the claims made in the letter. You may have rights that you are not aware of!
