Yes, minor changes to an existing trademark may be allowed in some cases. Minor changes typically refer to amendments that do not substantially alter the distinctive character or overall impression of the mark. Examples of minor changes include correcting typographical errors, updating contact information, or making small adjustments that do not fundamentally change the mark's essence. However, major changes, such as significant modifications to the design or core elements of the mark, generally require filing a new trademark application rather than editing the existing registration.
