I am considering initiating my first opposition proceeding.  Here's the situation.  An ITU application for the confusingly similar mark whose registration I opppose was actually filed before mine.  Hence, we don't have a registration yet.  However, our use clearly predates use of the other mark (considering it is an ITU app).  So far from my initial research I have gleaned that most oppositions are initiated by one who has an existing registration......

Intent to Use v. Actual Use (Opposition)

In Trademark Disputes    -  updated on 11/11/2009
Hello,

If you have an actual use application, based on use at time A, but filed at time C, and another files for a similar mark with intent-to-use at time B how do you go about interfering with the application?

Both of use are in separate markets with intention to go national.  We filed an opposition on their mark because it is potentially confusing with our incontestable word mark.

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

We filed for a trademark that got published and we have been served with an opposition. For all do purposes I will use the word GEEK ad the root of our newly created word.

So, we filed for Geektastic. Trademark got published and we have been opposed by a company that says they have the trademark for the word GEEK and our new mark will cause confusion since it is in the same industry.

The new word uses the word Geek as a root but it is a completely new word. What are our chances ...

We have been using a mark for the name of a series of television programs on pay-per-view since 2001.  We never tried to register the name until very recently.

(Our registration has been suspended due to this company...

I want to file a Notice of Opposition, and I want to do it electronically, what is the formatting that I needs to follow for the attached pleading document. Is it the Federal pleading format? Is there a local court rule?

If the attached document is a text document, do you still have to make sure that you have the correct spacings since text files sometimes collapses the spacing? How soon will I know if the pleading is accepted or denied?

Also, how do you sign for the opposer if ...

I registered a .com domain in 2001, and have been using it for commerical purposes related to my primary business. It is not my primary incorporated business name.  I had a logo designed for the domain in 2004, and bought the .net and .org versions.  I discussed a business plan with others and did preliminary product development.

I decided to incorporate a subsidiary business using the doman name as a business name in my state (PA).  But in doing the research for that, I...

My name is Boris Mordkovich and I'm the founder and owner of a New York-based Internet firm. We have a trademark problem that I would like to get some input in and perhaps find an experienced attorney to work with.

Last month, we have received a "Notice of Suspension" from the USPTO's office, which stated t...

My application for published for opposition on June 1st which would make July 1st the final day to oppose before its registered. My question may be too specific but I'm wondering, what time exactly does the opposition period end? In my case, would it be July 2 at 12:01 am or would it be the start of office hours the next day etc. I have a countdown clock set up on my desktop counting down to 12:01 on July 2nd, lol
