Asked in Trademark

Q: Hi, if the status of a trademark is: 602 - Abandoned-Failure To Respond Or Late Response I can take it or not?

Want to buy a domain but I saw that status here and I don't know exactly what does it mean.

A: Contact an attorney for the process

In general the fact it is available is good, but it is not the only criteria for getting a registration

Best luck!

A: An abandoned trademark application due to failure to file a required response does not necessarily mean that a trademark is not in use. Before using a trademark, it is important to conduct a clearance search to prevent using and infringing on a trademark that is in use for the same or related goods or services. Consult with a trademark attorney.
