Declarations of Use

Wording open to interpretation

The proposed wording "formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances" and "evidentiary support” is open to a wide range of interpretation. It is questionable what benefit is provided by its inclusion when it is so ambiguous. The phrasing "..specimens show the mark as used on or in connection with the goods/services…" may convey the incorrect impression that the specimen has to show use of the mark on or in connection with all the goods/services listed in the class.
