Statement of Use

If the trademark application is no longer objected by the examiner, it shall be accepted officially and published in Official Gazette.


Any party who believes it will be damaged by the registration of the mark may file a notice of opposition (or extension of time therefor) with the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.  If no party files an opposition or extension request within thirty (30) days after the publication date, then eleven (11) weeks after the publication date a notice of allowance (NOA) should issue.


If the filing basis of the trademark application is “Intent to Use”, the applicant must file a Statement of Use or Extension Request within six (6) months after the NOA issues.  Otherwise the application shall lapse.
