Can I respond to an Examiner’s Report on my own?

We developed our Light Touch service because we believe you can easily handle the majority of issues raised in Examiner’s Reports without professional assistance. The possible exception are three refusals which may require substantive responses:

· descriptiveness (if you sell coffee and you try to trademark the dictionary word “coffee”)

· confusion with a prior-existing registered or pending trademark

· non-distinctiveness (not unique enough to serve as a ‘badge of origin’)
