Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs trademark has been reinstated by the United States Patent and Trademark Office following the fraudulent attempt made by an unknown party earlier this week to abandon the trademark on the company’s behalf.
“An unknown party who lacked authority executed the purported abandonment of the application,” the USPTO said, in part. “Although the request appears to have been sent by petitioner, petitioner declared that it did not submit the request and has every reason to believe that this filing was fraudulent.”
“The Director finds the application should not have been abandoned. Pursuant to supervisory authority provided by 37 C.F.R. §2.146(a)(3), the Director permits the reinstatement of the application.”
