You filed a federal trademark application. The application may have gone through various refusals that you overcame; or your application may have sailed through smoothly without any objections. Either way, the good news is that your trademark is approved from the standpoint of examination. But, the USPTO allows third-parties to oppose every trademark application before the mark is allowed to register.
Your application has survived the initial process, and been approved by the Examining Attorney. The application will be reviewed by a publication committee, who will ensure that the requirements for publication are met, which includes a review of the Examining Attorney's file. It is not published yet. You will receive a separate notice when the mark is published for opposition. At that time, upon publication, third-parties will have 30 days to oppose registration of your mark if they feel that it will injure them in some way.
