Overcoming a 2(d) Refusal to Register a Trademark

If you’ve tried registering your trademark or service mark independently and faced a 2(d) refusal from the USPTO examining attorney, don’t lose hope! Typically, a 2(d) refusal occurs when the examining attorney believes there’s a likelihood of confusion between your applied-for mark and an existing one in the USPTO. However, this refusal doesn’t necessarily mean the end of the road for your application.

Reach out to us today, and let’s delve into the details of your case. We’ll explore potential counter-arguments to persuade the examining attorney and increase the chances of getting your trademark or service mark successfully registered with the USPTO.

Responding to Cease and Desist Letters

Have you recently received a cease and desist letter, instructing you to halt the use of a trademark you believed you rightfully owned? Unsure about the appropriate course of action?

The language in a well-crafted cease and desist letter can be intimidating, especially for individuals without legal expertise. While such letters are sometimes justified, accurately reflecting the sender’s claims, they can also serve as mere scare tactics intended to coerce you into relinquishing your legitimate use of the contested trademark or service mark.

If you find yourself in this situation and are uncertain about your rights, refrain from hasty conclusions. Instead, seek counsel from a seasoned legal advisor. Contact us immediately to arrange a consultation, allowing us to assess the merits of the claims outlined in the cease and desist letter. There’s a possibility that you possess rights you may not be fully aware of!
