Unfortunately, the answer would be yes. However, you can avoid this situation by taking proper precautions.

When you seek professional legal guidance, your representative can help you in three ways:

  • Assess the registrability of your mark and warn you if the chances of your application being dismissed are high (and if that is the case, offer suggestions on how to adjust your mark to improve your chances). We offer this kind of assessment free of charge.
  • Prepare your application, so it meets all requirements
  • Represent you if the IP office raises an issue requiring a response
