Beginning December 3, 2022, the United States Patent and Trademark Office reduced the time allotted for responding to most Trademark Office Actions from six months to three months. A three-month extension of time is available for an additional fee. This new deadline applies to Office Actions issued on or after December 3, 2022, and the Office Actions will specify that the response period is three months. The USPTO hopes that this will decrease the time it takes to get a trademark registration, but this also means trademark applicants may have to address any issues on an expedited timeline.
