A trademark application that is declared abandoned is dead and no longer pending. Abandonment occurs under several circumstances.
Applications abandoned for failure to respond to an office action or a notice of allowance can be revived or reinstated in certain circumstances.
An application can be expressly abandoned by filing a written statement of abandonment or withdrawal of the application signed by the applicant, or the attorney or other person representing the applicant in the USPTO. This is called express abandonment.
