Q: What would I have to do to reinstate my trademark after it has been cancelled (Sec.8)?
A: Depending on the reason for cancellation and time since it's been cancelled, you may have to file a new application. Feel free to call or email me if I can assist.

A: Actually, it's a fairly simple process if you're still within the 6 mos. 'grace period' following the sixth anniversary from your original date of registration. In addition to filing the Sec. 8 affidavit, you would submit an extra $100 per class. But if you have any further questions, please feel free to call or text.
A: You may have to file a new application for trademark registration or you may be able to file the Section 8 declaration if less than 6 months have passed since the due date. If too much time has passed, someone else may have begun using the mark and may have accrued rights. Contact a trademark attorney for more information.
