It’s rare, but it happens. What’s that you say? Sometimes two or more parties will file an extension of time to file an opposition against a trademark application. Usually, only one of the potential opposers will press forward with the filing of an actual opposition. It always surprises me that this happens in the first place. For instance, if both Top Tobacco, L.P. and General Cigar Company, Inc. are attacking the JSB trademark does that mean that there may be competing interests in the trademark as between the potential opposers? Since this is only an extension of time to file an opposition and not the opposition itself, it’s not readily apparent why each of these entities is interested in opposing JSB.
