frequently asked questions
Frequently asked questions
What our Expungement Proceeding service is and how it works.
What is a Trademark Expungement?
To be eligible for a trademark registration in the U.S. the goods and services listed must have been used in commerce. In those cases where the evidence suggests that some or all of the goods were never sold, it is possible to have a trademark registration canceled in whole or in part. This procedure allows for quickly removing trademark registrations that should have never been granted in the first place.
Why would I want to have a trademark registration expunged?
If your trademark application was refused because of a similar registration that was never used in commerce, it may be possible to quickly address this refusal by having the registration expunged.
Instead of arguing that your desired trademark is not too similar to the one cited by the trademark office (an argument that frequently can be difficult to win), the issue simply becomes about if the similar trademark registrant lied or provided inaccurate information to secure a trademark registration.
Once the expungement is filed, the trademark registrant must respond with evidence that their trademark was properly used in commerce. If they don’t respond or can’t provide evidence that satisfies the trademark office, their registration is canceled in whole or in part.
One of my trademarks has received a notice of an expungement proceeding. Can you help?
We can assist in presenting your case if you were actually using your trademark in commerce for the goods or services listed in the expungement proceeding. Simply pay the legal fee to get started.
What are the government filing fees to file an Expungement?
The government charges $400 to file a Petition to Expunge a trademark. There are no filing fees if you need to respond to an Expungement.
