WARNING: You have received a refusal that does not extend any new dates for your reply. Our reminder system is not able to record the dates, and thus you must rely on the dates set forth in the notice you received from the USPTO. You filed an application for registration of a trademark based on intent to use ("ITU"). The application was allowed. You have now filed a statement of use, alleging that you have used the mark. The statement of use has been rejected. You filed an amendment to try to address the defect. However, the amendment was found unresponsive and the USPTO has sent you a notice that your amendment was unresponsive. Your due date is set forth in that communication.
Your statement of use was refused in either a non-final office action or a final office action. You responded, but not properly.
You have six (6) months from the date of the emailing of the original refusal before you must appeal or respond appropriately. If you have not already passed this date, you may still file an appeal or other action.
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 respond, 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.
