What do I do if I receive a Notice of Opposition or Petition to Cancel?

24 October, 2018

According to the USPTO, if a notice of opposition has been filed against your pending trademark, you need to file an answer with the USPTO within thirty (30) days, responding to each of the claims of the opposer. Once you’ve submitted your response, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board will conduct a proceeding, which is like a mini trial based on written records, issuing a final decision.
