When does a trademark become abandoned?

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) "abandons" a trademark application whenever the applicant fails to timely file a response to an office action. A trademark application may also become abandoned if the applicant does not file an extension of time or a statement of use within 6 months from the notice of allowance. "Abandoned" means that the application is no longer pending and, therefore, cannot mature into a registration.
