If a complaint is lodged, the status changes to ‘Objected,’ and a well-prepared response must address the concerns and provide supporting evidence. If accepted, the application proceeds to the Trademark Journal. If not, a Trademark hearing may be scheduled. Typically, this process takes 2-4 months and offers a good chance of approval once resolved.
A trademark opposition is a formal action aimed at preventing the approval of a trademark application.
