Changes to Trademark Rules

By November 26, 2019December 4th, 2019No Comments

Effective December 21, 2019, all trademark applicants and registrants will be required to file trademark applications and documents concerning applications and registrations online using the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS).  According to the USPTO, the goal in requiring all trademark submissions to be filed electronically is to result in faster processing times and fewer errors.

While most trademark registrants are already familiar with the electronic filing process, for new applicants, the process can be difficult to navigate.  At Burt Blee, our trademark attorneys are familiar with the USPTO’s TEAS filing system and can assist you with the registration of your trademark.  For more information on the trademark application process, contact our office today at (260) 426-1300.
