Trademark identification and classification practice updates: 2024

Trademarks webinar series

Are you familiar with recent changes to the Nice Classification? Do you know how they impact U.S. identification policy and practice? Are you curious which identifications of goods and services are no longer acceptable in 2024?

Join two experts from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a discussion about classification and identification changes under the Nice Classification, 12th edition, version 2024 (Nice 12-2024).

We'll cover:

  • What’s behind the recent changes
  • Wording added to the USPTO’s Acceptable Identification of Goods and Services Manual (ID Manual)
  • Examples of acceptable identifications of goods and services
  • Best practices for identifying and classifying virtual services
  • Changes affecting green tech-related goods and services.

This webinar will use a high degree of legal terminology and concepts familiar to experienced trademark professionals, but we encourage trademark filers of all experience levels to attend.

We’ll post a recording of this event on the Trademarks webinar series page about three weeks after the event.
