What can be done about an office action?

The approach to resolving non-final office actions will depend on the nature of the issue. Below you can find some of the standard resolution tactics we also employ.

Administrative errors

These minor issues are usually quickly resolved. They might require correcting the intended owner's details or submitting an additional form to the examiner.

Broken pen

Lack of distinctiveness

If the IPO considers the mark not distinct enough, the solution might involve collecting evidence proving that the mark has "acquired distinctiveness through use".

Red and yellow pencils

Likelihood of confusion

In case the IPO suspects a likelihood of confusion with an already existing trademark, you can limit the list of goods and services or approach the third party and propose a co-existence agreement.
