Fraudulent alert roundtable on July 26

Last week, a fifth person was convicted for his role in a scam that defrauded thousands of trademark applicants. We are proud to have assisted federal law enforcement officials in this recent example of the fraudulent solicitations that continue to target our customers.

We continue to work hard to publicize and combat this ongoing issue. The USPTO Commissioner for Trademarks Mary Boney Denison writes about our ongoing efforts in her blog post, USPTO fights fraudulent trademark solicitations.

On July 26, the Trademark Organization and the Trademark Public Advisory Committee plan to hold a roundtable discussion on fraudulent solicitations. If you or your client would like to share your experience with a fraudulent advertisement at the roundtable, please contact Leigh Lowry at TMPolicy@uspto.gov.
