DID YOU RECEIVE A TRADEMARK OFFICE ACTION?
If you have received an Office Action from an examining attorney regarding your application, you must respond within six (6) months of the issue date of the Office action, or your application will be abandoned. However, if your delay in responding to the Office action was unintentional, you may submit a petition to revive. If the Office Action is a “Priority Action,” responding within two (2) months will give you priority handling; however, you do have the full six (6) month response period, if necessary). Your response must arrive on the USPTO server prior to Midnight, Eastern Standard Time, of the last day of the response period- any problem with transmission will not excuse an untimely response. Should the last day of the response period fall on a Saturday, Sunday or U.S. Federal Holiday, you may submit your response prior to Midnight, Eastern Standard Time, of the next regular business day and it will be considered “timely.” You should respond to each point raised in the Office Action Form fully and completely.
