In case of objections, you need a Trademark Attorney to file replies. You can also choose to not submit any reply and abandon the application.

Approval Process

  1. Once approved, the Trademark is published in Trademark Journal. Any person who feels that this Trademark is similar to their Trademark is required to file an opposition within 3 months from publication. If you receive opposition, once again you need a Trademark Attorney to file replies to it. The Trademark registry will evaluate your replies with the other party’s statements and decide if you can register your Trademark. You can also abandon the application at this point by not filing any replies.
  1. Finally, you will receive your registration certificate if there was no opposition or if the Trademark registry found your replies to the opposition to be satisfactory. After this, you can use the ® symbol next to your Trademark.
