Registration is refused because the applied-for mark merely describes a characteristic of applicant’sgoods and/or services. Trademark Act Section 2(e)(1), 15 U.S.C. §1052(e)(1);
see
TMEP §§1209.01(b),1209.03

In addition to being merely descriptive, the applied-for mark appears to be generic in connection with the
 
identified services and, therefore, incapable of functioning as a source-identifier for applicant’s services.
