Any Of You Guys Have Weirdness Regarding Incomplete Publication of Applications?


Client had a bunch of applications published (in a country that isn’t the U.S.). The publication details on all of them were truncated due to a mistake by that country’s trademark office. We are advised that if allowed to issue, the resulting registrations are vulnerable to cancellation because of the incomplete publication (on the theory that third parties were denied the complete information necessary to oppose). We are advised to file a motion to re-publish (which isn’t free).

Any of you guys experience this, ever?
