A: If Instagram is denying your trademark request, it's crucial to review the submission. Ensure that all the documentation you're providing is accurate and complete. This includes proof of your registered trademark and any evidence of its use in commerce.

Sometimes, the issue could be with how the trademark is being presented or a misunderstanding of its scope. It may help to clarify how your trademark is being used in relation to the services or products you offer. Also, consider whether the trademark as registered aligns with the way it's being used on Instagram.

If these steps don't resolve the issue, you might want to seek further legal advice. A professional familiar with intellectual property law can provide specific guidance based on the details of your case. Remember, dealing with such matters can be complex, and having expert advice can be beneficial.
