The application for cancellation of a trademark from the register of a Patent and Trademark Office is available for everyone, not only for brand owners. The cancellation can be requested on the basis of absolute grounds for refusal, or failure to use the mark.


The absolute grounds of refusal include among others the lack of any distinctive character of the trademark for the goods and services, descriptive character or if the trademark registration has been made with bad faith (for unfair competition).
