`OFFICE ACTION
`
`STRICT DEADLINE TO RESPOND TO THIS LETTER
`TO AVOID ABANDONMENT OF APPLICANT’S TRADEMARK APPLICATION, THE USPTO MUST RECEIVE APPLICANT’S
`COMPLETE RESPONSE TO THIS LETTER WITHIN 6 MONTHS OF THE ISSUE/MAILING DATE BELOW.
`
`(cid:160)I
`
`SSUE/MAILING DATE: 9/15/2015
`
`The referenced application has been reviewed by the assigned trademark examining attorney.(cid:160) Applicant must respond timely and completely to
`the issues below.(cid:160) 15 U.S.C. §1062(b); 37 C.F.R. §§2.62(a), 2.65(a); TMEP §§711, 718.03.
`
`(cid:160)S
`
`UMMARY OF ISSUES IN THIS OFFICE ACTION:
`
`SEARCH RESULTS: PRIOR-FILED APPLICATION
`REQUIREMENT: IDENTIFICATION OF GOODS CLARIFICATION NEEDED
`
`REQUIREMENT: DISCLAIMER NEEDED(cid:160)(cid:160)
`SEARCH RESULTS: PRIOR-FILED APPLICATION
`
`(cid:160)T
`
`he filing date of pending U.S. Application Serial No. 86564465 precedes applicant’s filing date.(cid:160) See attached referenced application at Exhibit
`A.(cid:160) If the mark in the referenced application registers, applicant’s mark may be refused registration under Trademark Act Section 2(d) because of
`
`(cid:160)
`(cid:160)
`(cid:160)
`(cid:160)
`(cid:160)
`(cid:160)
`

`

`a likelihood of confusion between the two marks.(cid:160) See 15 U.S.C. §1052(d); 37 C.F.R. §2.83; TMEP §§1208 et seq.(cid:160) Therefore, upon receipt of
`applicant’s response to this Office action, action on this application may be suspended pending final disposition of the earlier-filed referenced
`application.
`
`(cid:160)I
`
`n response to this Office action, applicant may present arguments in support of registration by addressing the issue of the potential conflict
`between applicant’s mark and the mark in the referenced application.(cid:160) Applicant’s election not to submit arguments at this time in no way limits
`applicant’s right to address this issue later if a refusal under Section 2(d) issues.
`
`(cid:160)R
`
`EQUIREMENT: IDENTIFICATION OF GOODS CLARIFICATION NEEDED
`
`(cid:160)T
`
`he wording in the identification of goods is indefinite and must be clarified because it contains a slash which functions like the word “or”. (cid:160) See
`TMEP §1402.01.
`
`(cid:160)A
`
`n application must specify, in an explicit manner, the particular goods or services on or in connection with which the applicant uses, or has a
`bona fide intention to use, the mark in commerce.(cid:160) See 15 U.S.C. §1051(a)(2), (b)(2); 37 C.F.R. §2.32(a)(6); TMEP §1402.01.(cid:160) Generally, the
`terminology “and/or” and “or” is not sufficiently explicit language in identifications because it is not clear whether applicant is using the mark,
`
`or intends to use the mark, on all the identified goods or services.(cid:160) See TMEP §1402.03(a).(cid:160)(cid:160)
`
`For example, “modems and/or monitors” could be read to mean “modems or monitors” and thus it is unclear which goods applicant intends to
`identify.(cid:160) Applicant could amend the identification to “modems” alone, or “monitors” alone, or “modems and monitors” if applicable.
`Therefore, applicant should replace “and/or” with “and” in the identification of goods or services, if appropriate, or rewrite the identification
`with the “and/or” deleted and the goods or services specified using definite and unambiguous language.
`
`SUGGESTED IDENTIFICATION OF GOODS
`
`(cid:160)I
`
`nstructions and suggested changes are shown in bold text.(cid:160) Applicant may adopt the following identification of goods, if accurate:(cid:160)(cid:160)
`INTERNATIONAL CLASS 5: All natural, non-medicated, therapeutic topical creams for the treatment of sports injuries, neck pain, sore and
`stiff muscles, sciatic nerve relief, and arthritis
`
`(cid:160)S
`
`ee TMEP §1402.01.
`
`(cid:160)A
`
`n applicant may only amend an identification to clarify or limit the goods, but not to add to or broaden the scope of the goods.(cid:160) 37 C.F.R.
`
`§2.71(a); see TMEP §§1402.06 et seq., 1402.07.(cid:160)(cid:160)
`
`For assistance with identifying and classifying goods and services in trademark applications, please see the USPTO’s online searchable U.S.
`Acceptable Identification of Goods and Services Manual at http://tess2.uspto.gov/netahtml/tidm.html. (cid:160) See TMEP §1402.04.
`
`(cid:160)R
`
`EQUIREMENT: DISCLAIMER NEEDED
`
`(cid:160)A
`
`pplicant must disclaim the wording “ANTI-INFLAMMATORY” because it merely describes an ingredient, quality, characteristic, function,
`feature, purpose, or use of applicant’s goods, and thus is an unregistrable component of the mark.(cid:160) See 15 U.S.C. §§1052(e)(1), 1056(a);
`DuoProSS Meditech Corp. v. Inviro Med. Devices, Ltd., 695 F.3d 1247, 1251, 103 USPQ2d 1753, 1755 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (quoting In re Oppedahl
`
`& Larson LLP, 373 F.3d 1171, 1173, 71 USPQ2d 1370, 1371 (Fed. Cir. 2004)); TMEP §§1213, 1213.03(a).(cid:160)(cid:160)
`
`The attached evidence from the Macmillan Dictionary shows the wording “ANTI-INFLAMMATORY” means “a drug taken to reduce
`inflammation.” (cid:160) Applicant’s goods are identified as “All natural, non-medicated, therapeutic topical creams for the treatment of sports injuries,
`neck pain, sore/stiff muscles, sciatic nerve relief, and arthritis” in International Class 5. (cid:160) Attached at Exhibit C, is evidence from the applicant’s
`website, www.migraineawayandmore.com, showing applicant’s goods are a “Powerful All Natural Roll On Anti-Inflammatory.” (cid:160) Therefore,
`the wording “ANTI-INFLAMMATORY” merely describes a characteristic of the applicant’s identified goods.
`
`(cid:160)A
`
`n applicant may not claim exclusive rights to terms that others may need to use to describe their goods in the marketplace.(cid:160) See Dena Corp. v.
`Belvedere Int’l, Inc. , 950 F.2d 1555, 1560, 21 USPQ2d 1047, 1051 (Fed. Cir. 1991); In re Aug. Storck KG, 218 USPQ 823, 825 (TTAB 1983).(cid:160)
`A disclaimer of unregistrable matter does not affect the appearance of the mark; that is, a disclaimer does not physically remove the disclaimed
`
`matter from the mark.(cid:160) See Schwarzkopf v. John H. Breck, Inc., 340 F.2d 978, 978, 144 USPQ 433, 433 (C.C.P.A. 1965); TMEP §1213.(cid:160)(cid:160)
`
`If applicant does not provide the required disclaimer, the USPTO may refuse to register the entire mark.(cid:160) See In re Stereotaxis Inc., 429 F.3d
`1039, 1040-41, 77 USPQ2d 1087, 1088-89 (Fed. Cir. 2005); TMEP §1213.01(b).
`
`(cid:160)A
`
`pplicant should submit a disclaimer in the following standardized format:
`
`(cid:160)
`(cid:160)
`(cid:160)
`

`

`No claim is made to the exclusive right to use “ANTI-INFLAMMATORY” apart from the mark as shown.
`
`(cid:160)F
`
`or an overview of disclaimers and instructions on how to satisfy this disclaimer requirement online using the Trademark Electronic Application
`System (TEAS) form, please go to http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/law/disclaimer.jsp.
`
`ADVISORY: RESPONDING TO THIS OFFICE ACTION
`
`TEAS PLUS OR TEAS REDUCED FEE (TEAS RF) APPLICANTS – TO MAINTAIN LOWER FEE, ADDITIONAL
`REQUIREMENTS MUST BE MET, INCLUDING SUBMITTING DOCUMENTS ONLINE:(cid:160) Applicants who filed their application
`online using the lower-fee TEAS Plus or TEAS RF application form must (1) file certain documents online using TEAS, including responses to
`Office actions (see TMEP §§819.02(b), 820.02(b) for a complete list of these documents); (2) maintain a valid e-mail correspondence address;
`and (3) agree to receive correspondence from the USPTO by e-mail throughout the prosecution of the application.(cid:160) See 37 C.F.R. §§2.22(b),
`2.23(b); TMEP §§819, 820.(cid:160) TEAS Plus or TEAS RF applicants who do not meet these requirements must submit an additional processing fee of
`$50 per international class of goods and/or services.(cid:160) 37 C.F.R. §§2.6(a)(1)(v), 2.22(c), 2.23(c); TMEP §§819.04, 820.04.(cid:160) However, in certain
`situations, TEAS Plus or TEAS RF applicants may respond to an Office action by authorizing an examiner’s amendment by telephone without
`
`incurring this additional fee.(cid:160)(cid:160)
`ADVISORY: APPLICANT MAY WISH TO HIRE A SPECIALIST ATTORNEY
`
`(cid:160)B
`
`ecause of the legal technicalities and strict deadlines involved in the USPTO application process, applicant may wish to hire a private
`attorney specializing in trademark matters to represent applicant in this process and provide legal advice.(cid:160) Although the undersigned trademark
`examining attorney is permitted to help an applicant understand the contents of an Office action as well as the application process in general, no
`
`USPTO attorney or staff is permitted to give an applicant legal advice or statements about an applicant’s legal rights. (cid:160) TMEP §§705.02, 709.06.(cid:160)(cid:160)
`
`For attorney referral information, applicant may consult the American Bar Association’s Consumers’ Guide to Legal Help at
`http://www.abanet.org/legalservices/findlegalhelp/home.cfm, an attorney referral service of a state or local bar association, or a local telephone
`directory.(cid:160) The USPTO may not assist an applicant in the selection of a private attorney.(cid:160) 37 C.F.R. §2.11.
`
`(cid:160)O
`
`FFICE ACTION QUESTIONS: If applicant has questions regarding this Office action, please telephone or e-mail the assigned trademark
`examining attorney.(cid:160) All relevant e-mail communications will be placed in the official application record; however, an e-mail communication
`will not be accepted as a response to this Office action and will not extend the deadline for filing a proper response.(cid:160) See 37 C.F.R. §§2.62(c),
`2.191; TMEP §§304.01-.02, 709.04-.05.(cid:160) Further, although the trademark examining attorney may provide additional explanation pertaining to
`the refusal(s) and/or requirement(s) in this Office action, the trademark examining attorney may not provide legal advice or statements
`about applicant’s rights .(cid:160) See TMEP §§705.02, 709.06.
