Trademark Oppositions & Cancellations

 

Trademark Oppositions

A trademark opposition is a legal proceeding that allows parties to challenge the registration of a trademark. This can occur when a trademark application is published for opposition, providing an opportunity for third parties to raise objections based on various grounds.

 

Trademark Cancellations

A trademark cancellation is a formal legal action aimed at invalidating an existing trademark registration. This may be pursued for a variety of reasons, such as abandonment, non-use, or a likelihood of confusion with an existing mark.
