Trademark Withdrawal


Registering a trademark grants you exclusive rights to it and protects it from unauthorized use. In some cases, trademark registration application may also be marked as "Withdrawn" in situations where you have filed an application for withdrawal of your Trademark Suo Moto or after Opposition filed by a Third Party after Accepted & Advertised status of your trademark application. Trademark Withdrawal can also be caused by Well-Known Trademark Owners asking you to withdraw your application owing to their grounds of TM Infringement.

If your trademark status is updated as withdrawn, you must be wondering, "What does the trademark application status withdrawn mean?" The process of withdrawing a trademark registration application allows you to withdraw your trademark application before it is registered. You can withdraw a trademark registration application after submitting it by filing a withdrawal request.


If you discover that your trademark is not acceptable to the registrar, you may withdraw your trademark application before the Hearing Officer. The TM Withdrawal can also happen after the Opposition filed by a Third Party on Accepted & Advertised Status caused by TM-O.

The Hearing Officer will review your withdrawal request and update the Trademarks Registry record accordingly. You will no longer have any rights to the trademark if you withdraw your trademark registration application.
