If you received this notice, your statement of use has encountered a possible obstacle. The Examining Attorney has addressed this with recommendations to amend with a simple Examiner's Amendment. You can accept the proposed changes, or argue with the Examining Attorney. You have six (6) months from the date of the notice to respond, or the application will go abandoned. If you respond within two (2) months, the Examiner will give your response expedited review.
In most cases, the examiner's amendment is to make a minor change to the application or correct an obvious error to allow the trademark to proceed to registration.
Trademark examiners often reach out directly to the applicant or to the attorney of record and discuss examiner's amendments by email or telephone. In some cases, the applicant can respond to the trademark examiner in the same way.
