Anybody has experience in filing trademark in Canada claiming priority based on the US trademark filing.
In my declaration for the priority, I set out date, country and registration number of the US filing, claiming the priority is on the basis of my US filing. The examiner insisted that my declaration is incomplete because I did not say, "for the same or substantially same trademark for use in association with the same kind of wares or services;" rejected my priority claim
Anybody has similar experience? Is it so strict for priority claim? I checked with practice notice posted at the Canadian PTO office, seemingly, my declaration is fine.
Thank you for any suggestions.
