  • Descriptiveness: If your mark is deemed too descriptive of the goods or services it represents, it may be objected to as it lacks distinctiveness.
  • Generic Terms: Trademarks that use common, generic terms may face objections as they are not capable of identifying a specific source of goods or services.
  • Offensive or Prohibited Content: Marks that include offensive or scandalous content may be objected to on the grounds of public morality or decency.
  • Deceptive Marks: If the mark misleads consumers about the nature, quality, or origin of goods or services, it can be objected to.

  • Prepare a Strong Response: Craft a detailed and persuasive response to counter each objection with evidence and legal arguments.
  • Timely Submission: Ensure that your response is submitted within the designated timeframe to avoid potential abandonment of the application.
