FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW TO ACCESS THE LETTER OF PROTEST FORM:

STEP 1: CHECK STATUS.
The USPTO will accept a letter of protest filed before publication in all cases where it is determined that the evidence is relevant and supports any reasonable ground for refusal appropriate in ex parte examination. When a letter of protest is filed on the date of publication or within 30 days after the date of publication, the letter of protest will be accepted only where publication of the mark constituted clear error. Letters of protest filed more than 30 days after publication are generally denied as untimely. Click here to confirm the status of the application before proceeding. If the application is not in the correct status, you will receive an error message when you click the "Continue" button.

STEP 2: ENTER THE U.S. APPLICATION SERIAL NUMBER BEING PROTESTED BELOW OR ACCESS PREVIOUSLY FILLED-OUT/SAVED FORM.
