A: It means another party filed a cancellation proceeding, which is a legal proceeding that attempts to cancel the mark on one or more grounds. In this particular case, it looks like that cancellation proceeding ended in December 2022. The cancellation request was denied, meaning that it is still a live, active trademark registration.

A: "Cancellation pending" in the context of trademarks typically means that a third party has initiated proceedings to cancel the registration of the trademark. The reasons for seeking cancellation can vary, such as allegations that the trademark is no longer in use or was improperly registered. If you're interested in the "LUCKYEYE" mark or any implications surrounding its cancellation, it's essential to review the specifics of the case and potentially seek guidance before taking any actions regarding the mark.
