Washington - The Commerce Department's U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Commissioner for Trademarks, Anne Chasser, will host a training seminar, featuring a demonstration of the agency's award-winning Trademark Electronic Filing System (TEAS) for prospective users and offering "nuts-and-bolts" perspectives from trademarks applicants who have used the system. Electronic government is a cornerstone of the President's Management Agenda. Approximately 25% of USPTO's trademark applicants currently use USPTO's faster, more efficient electronic filing system. The seminar is intended to increase the number of trademark filers using the system.
