If you have received this notice, your application has been given a final refusal. You requested reconsideration of a final refusal. The Examining Attorney reconsidered and has decided to issue a new final refusal with a new deadline. You have six (6) months from the date of the emailing of this new final refusal before you must appeal.
You filed a trademark application. The application was refused in a non-final office action. You responded. The USPTO examiner refused again in a final office action. You requested reconsideration or made additional arguments.
The Examining Attorney reconsidered and has continued the final refusal.
You have six (6) months from the date of the emailing of the new subsequent final refusal before you must appeal. A notice of appeal is easy: you file a notice and pay a fee. But, then you will have to file an appeal brief, making legal arguments for why the Examiner was wrong about the grounds for refusal to register your mark.
If the date has passed to file an appeal, then your trademark application will go abandoned in due course. You may petition to revive the application, but revivals are not generally granted for this type of abandonment.
