The "Notice of Acceptance of Registration Application" only indicates that the trademark registration application has been accepted by the Trademark Office, and does not indicate that the application has been approved.
If the application for trademark registration is rejected, if the applicant is not satisfied with the rejection decision, the applicant may apply to the Trademark Review and Adjudication Board for review within 15 days from the date of receipt of the notification of rejection.
If the trademark applied for registration is opposed, if the applicant (that is, the objected person) is not satisfied with the decision of the Trademark Office not to register, he may apply to the Trademark Review and Adjudication Board for review within 15 days from the date of receipt of the notification.
The validity period of a registered trademark is 10 years from the date of approval of registration. If the registered trademark needs to continue to be used after the expiration date, the trademark registrant shall go through the renewal procedures within 12 months before the expiration date.
If the trademark registrant fails to handle the application within this period, he may apply within a grace period of 6 months after the expiration of the period, but he must pay the delay fee for accepting and renewing the registration.
If the renewal application is not filed after the grace period expires, the Trademark Office will cancel the registered trademark. If the original registrant wants to continue to have the exclusive right to use the trademark, he must file a new registration application.
