Stop an infringing trademark application
before it registers.
If you become aware of a trademark application pending at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that you believe is too similar to a mark that you own, you can inexpensively voice your objection to registration with a Letter of Protest. Work with experienced trademark attorneys to present evidence of potential infringement in the form the USPTO requires. Submitting a Letter of Protest is far less expensive than pursuing litigation to block the registration of a potentially infringing mark.
You fill out the law firm's online agreement and pay the flat fee by credit card.
The trademark attorney assigned to your case contacts you with any questions they may have and drafts the Letter of Protest.
The attorney files the Letter of Protest with the USPTO and becomes responsible for keeping you updated on the case status.
A Letter of Protest is a request that the attorney in charge of reviewing and approving a specific trademark application be advised of evidence of potential infringement when considering the merits of that application. If the Letter is accepted by the trademark office, the evidence included with the Letter will be forwarded to the examining attorney for their consideration. A Letter of Protest must be filed no later than 30 days after the publication of the protested mark, so time is of the essence in these matters.
