When do I need to file a Trademark Revival?

A trademark revival is necessary when a trademark has been cancelled or expired and the owner wants to bring it back into use. The revival process is a way to restore a trademark that is no longer in use but was previously registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The owner must demonstrate that the trademark was in continuous use before the cancellation or expiration and that the trademark has been or is in use in commerce in connection with the goods or services listed in the original registration.

The deadline to file a trademark revival varies depending on the specific circumstances. In general, the trademark owner must file the revival within a certain time frame, typically within two to six years of the cancellation or expiration date. It is important to consult with a trademark attorney to determine the specific deadline and requirements for filing a trademark revival.
