The USPTO has proposed reducing some trademark filing fees. They request public comments.

Some quick questions to consider as you perhaps comment:

  • Are the fee reductions good? (Of course how could they be bad?)
  • But are they the right reductions?
  • Should the cost of filing on paper be increased to discourage such filings which cost a lot more to process?
  • Are there any creative solutions to making TEAS+ more accessible by making its identification of goods requirements less difficult to comply with?

USPTO’s request for comments:

Note that I will post our firm’s full comments in the next days.
