How can we change the name of the mark via the API?

Please be aware that changes to mark records (other than uploading a Proof of Use document or adding/removing labels) are only possible when the mark record has been assigned status incorrect.

To update the name of a mark you need to follow the next steps in the exact order, in separate commands:

  • Update the name of the Mark (and other fields if necessary)

After executing the command to change the name of the Mark the existing labels attached to the Mark record will be automatically removed. (Notice : this is not an action, it is done automatically)

  • Add the labels you want, if any, to the Mark record (if you do not perform this step no labels will be attached to the Mark record)

The number of labels you can attach to the Mark record is either the number of labels originally attached to the Mark record or 10 labels, whichever number is biggest. Keep in mind adding labels is not possible when a Mark Record is being verified or when it is expired.
