is this the answer I get to justify charging me an additional $35?!
IP Lawyer: DamienBosco, Attorney replied 5 months ago

No. That is just an information request. I am developing the answer for you.

To draft your answer to the trademark opposition, you must admit or deny every allegation asserted by the opposition. In other words, you would take each paragraph and either admit, deny or claim lack of information known to either admit or deny. You would also, assert in plain terms any applicable defenses to the allegations set forth in the opposition. Typical defenses include unclean hands, laches, estoppel, acquiescence, fraud, mistake, prior registration or any other common affirmative defense. You may also assert counterclaims in your answer when applicable. You would have to serve and file the answer also.

We can discuss further if you want to do so. Do you have any further questions?
