Email the Director

Director Vidal and the team at the USPTO want to hear from you. Your valuable feedback will help us meet our stakeholders’ needs, improve intellectual property protection, and bring more innovation to impact. If you have any suggestions or ideas, please send them to one of the email addresses below. In addition, we welcome your thoughts on open USPTO Federal Register Notices. Please note that while we welcome feedback on USPTO policies, practices, and procedures, it is not appropriate to contact the Director about specific pending matters (either your own or anyone else’s) and the Director will not review or consider any such communications. We look forward to receiving your feedback.

If you have general questions about intellectual property, application processes, or available resources, please visit the Inventor and entrepreneur resources webpage. If you want to provide the Director with input on topics other than those listed above, please email
