Your trademark registration was rejected or opposed by the CNIPA, Li & Associates Trademark Services are here to help. Our office in China can confidently file an appeal of opposition or appeal of objection with the Trademark Review and Adjudication Department (TRAD).
Procedure – Appealing with the TRAD
The three primary types of TRAD appeals include:
Rejections of applications, normally due to prior marks on the registry
Reviews of unfavorable non-use cancellation decisions
Oppositions, where the mark’s applicant has lost
If the applicant is still dissatisfied with the decision made by the TRAD, Li & Associates will appeal the case with IP Court of China. A trademark appeal petition (or pre-registration procedure) must be filed before IP Court within the time limits given, after this evidence is required. If this application receives an unfavorable decision, Li & Associates will file an appeal with the High Court.
