I received yet another scam related to one of the trademark registrations I own. This one comes from IP Data (

The solicitation makes little if any sense. They actually appear to disclaim any connection other worthless registry services. They appear to be based in the Czech Republic. A copy of their offering is below.

Their offering costs $2,327. Is it worth a single dollar? Has any trademark attorney, judge, or trademark office consulted their “register” for anything?  I doubt it.

    I received this and another scam from UPTS ( for 2419.66.

    The return address of Prague, Czech Republic was a dead giveaway.

    Interesting how they present the “offer” as a renewal. As if to convince the recipient that the charge has been paid for previous years It must be legitimate if we are “renewing”, right?

    I got two of these – for patents, not for trademarks. One from and one from IPTO. Seems that what you get for the $2000+ fee is entry in their patent “registry”. Kind of like having your very own star listed in the international star registry.

    I also received the exact same invoice from IP Data. It’s a scam, not legit. I get bills like this pretending to renew patents a couple times a year. Scammers.
