YOUR MARK: The Dramatics (Standard Characters, mark.jpg)
The literal element of the mark consists of The Dramatics.
The mark consists of standard characters, without claim to any particular font, style, size, or color.
YOUR SERIAL NUMBER: We have received your U.S. Trademark Application and assigned serial number ‘86539525’ to your submission. A summary of your application data is provided at the bottom of this message and serves as your official filing receipt. Please keep a copy of this information for your records. All correspondence concerning the application should reference your assigned serial number.
Please read all of the important information below. Not every mark is registrable with the USPTO and we do not refund the application filing fee(s) if a registration does not ultimately issue.
RECEIVING E-MAIL COMMUNICATIONS/FILING DOCUMENTS ON-LINE: Because you have authorized receipt of correspondence by e-mail, please make sure that your server will accept USPTO e-mail and not treat it as SPAM. If you must submit correspondence to us, please use the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS) forms, available at http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/teas/index.jsp. Applicants who filed their application online using the lower-fee TEAS RF application form must (1) continue to submit certain documents online using TEAS, including responses to Office actions (see http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/teas/required_teas_filings.jsp for a complete list of these documents); (2) accept correspondence from the USPTO via e-mail throughout the examination process; and (3) maintain a valid e-mail address. TEAS RF applicants who do not meet these three requirements must submit an additional processing fee of $50 per international class of goods and/or services. However, in certain situations, authorizing an examiner’s amendment by telephone will not incur this additional fee.
KEEP YOUR ADDRESS CURRENT IN USPTO RECORDS: We do not extend filing deadlines due to a failure to receive USPTO mailings/e-mailings. You must update the correspondence and/or owner’s address if a postal address and/or e-mail address changes, using the form(s) available at http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/teas/correspondence.jsp.
WARNING ABOUT UNSOLICITED COMMUNICATIONS: You may receive trademark-related communications from private companies not associated with the USPTO. These communications frequently display customer-specific information, including your USPTO serial number or registration number and owner name, and request fees for trademark-related services, such as monitoring, listings in international publications, and document filing. None of the companies offering these services are affiliated with the USPTO or any other federal agency. All official correspondence will be from the “United States Patent and Trademark Office” in Alexandria, VA, and if by e-mail, specifically from the domain “@uspto.gov.” Please consult the “Warning” page on the Trademarks section of the USPTO’s website for further information about unsolicited communications and to view representative examples of them. For general information on filing and maintenance requirements for trademark applications and registrations, including fees required by law, please consult www.uspto.gov, contact the TrademarkAssistanceCenter@uspto.gov or telephone 1-800-786-9199.
LEGAL EXAMINATION PROCESS: Your application is now pending examination. In approximately 3 months, your application will be assigned to a USPTO examining attorney for review. The application cannot mature into a registration unless all legal requirements are met, and many applications never satisfy these requirements and therefore never register. The overall process can take up to 18 months.
CHECK STATUS AND REVIEW DOCUMENTS OR YOUR APPLICATION MAY BE UNINTENTIONALLY ABANDONED: You must check the status and review all documents associated with your application at least every 3-4 months using Trademark Status and Document Retrieval (TSDR), available at http://tsdr.uspto.gov/.
Promptly e-mail the TrademarkAssistanceCenter@uspto.gov or telephone 1-800-786-9199 (select option #1) if an Office action (letter from the USPTO) or notice has issued for your application that you did not receive or do not understand. Failure to respond timely to any Office action or notice may result in the abandonment of your application, requiring you to pay an additional fee to have your application revived even if you did not receive the Office action or notice.
FILING ERRORS: If you discover an error in the application data, you must file a Voluntary Amendment at http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/teas/miscellaneous.jsp Do not submit any proposed amendment to TEAS@uspto.gov , because the TEAS technical support team may not make any data changes. Please wait approximately 7 days after the filing date of your application to submit a Voluntary Amendment in order to allow for initial upload of your application data into the USPTO database. The assigned examining attorney will determine the acceptability of any Voluntary Amendment during examination. Not all errors may be corrected. For example, if you submitted the wrong mark or if the proposed correction would be considered a material alteration to your original filing, it will not be accepted. In this situation, your only recourse would be to file a new application, with a new fee and no refund of your original filing fee.
REQUEST FOR REFUND AND/OR CANCELLATION: Since your application has already been assigned a serial number, please do not contact TEAS@uspto.gov to request a refund or to cancel the filing. We will only cancel the filing and refund the filing fee if the application does not meet minimum filing requirements. The fee is a processing fee that the USPTO does not refund, even if your mark does not proceed to registration.
In the limited situation where you inadvertently filed identical applications, one immediately after the other, because no confirmation of the first filing was received, please provide both serial numbers to the technical support team at TEAS@uspto.gov.

P.O. Box 401211
Redford, Michigan 48240
E-mail Authorization: I authorize the USPTO to send e-mail correspondence concerning the application to the applicant or applicant’s attorney at the e-mail address provided below. I understand that a valid e-mail address must be maintained and that the applicant or the applicant’s attorney must file the relevant subsequent application-related submissions via the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS). Failure to do so will result in an additional processing fee of $50 per international class of goods and/or services.
A fee payment in the amount of $275 has been submitted with the application, representing payment for 1 class(es).
The signatory believes that: if the applicant is filing the application under 15 U.S.C. Section 1051(a), the applicant is the owner of the trademark/service mark sought to be registered; the applicant or the applicant’s related company or licensee is using the mark in commerce on or in connection with the goods/services in the application, and such use by the applicant’s related company or licensee inures to the benefit of the applicant; the specimen(s) shows the mark as used on or in connection with the goods/services in the application; and/or if the applicant filed an application under 15 U.S.C. Section 1051(b), Section 1126(d), and/or Section 1126(e), the applicant is entitled to use the mark in commerce; the applicant has a bona fide intention to use or use through the applicant’s related company or licensee the mark in commerce on or in connection with the goods/services in the application. The signatory believes that to the best of the signatory’s knowledge and belief, no other person has the right to use the mark in commerce, either in the identical form or in such near resemblance as to be likely, when used on or in connection with the goods/services of such other person, to cause confusion or mistake, or to deceive. The signatory being warned that willful false statements and the like are punishable by fine or imprisonment, or both, under 18 U.S.C. Section 1001, and that such willful false statements and the like may jeopardize the validity of the application or any registration resulting therefrom, declares that all statements made of his/her own knowledge are true and all statements made on information and belief are believed to be true.
