REMARKS

This paper is filed in response to the Office Action of May 23, 2007.

The Examiner indicated that the mark in the application differs from the

submitted specimen. The Examiner indicated that the novel spelling of the word

“partez” is not separable from the other terms in the specimen, thus is not

sufficient for the application for the mark. The Applicant disputes this contention.

The services that are being performed that use this “applied for” mark, are for

parties. As can be seen in the substitute specimens, the words “Tickle Me Pink”

are separate and distinct from the word “partez” in font and color. Further,

Exhibit 1, distinguishes the word “partez” further by including the word

“bachelorette” before it. In addition, the remaining substitute specimens, Exhibits

3 and 4 do not contain the word “partez” or any other version of the word party.

Thus with this explanation and the substitute specimens, this objection has been

overcome. Please note that a declaration with the word suggested by the

Examiner concerning the substitute specimens is being submitted herewith.

The Examiner indicated that the identification of the goods and services

was unacceptable and indefinite. The Examiner further suggested language to

overcome this objection. The identification has been amended as suggested by

the Examiner, thus this objection has also been overcome.

It is noted that the Examining Attorney has searched the Office records

and has found no similar registered or pending mark which would bar the

registration under Trademark Act Section 2(d), 15 U.S.C. § 1052(d). Therefore,

with the amendments as set forth above, it appears that this mark is in condition
for publication. Should the Examiner have any questions, he is invited to call the

undersigned collect at (505) 899-0269.

The Commissioner is authorized to charge any fees or credit any

overpayment under 37 C.F.R. §§ 1.16 and 1.17 which may be required during the

entire pendency of the application to Deposit Account No. 01-2335.
