Join us at the Elijah J. McCoy Midwest USPTO in Detroit to view a simulcast from USPTO headquarters on "Fraudulent Solicitations to Trademark Owners". The USPTO and its Trademark Public Advisory Committee are co-hosting a roundtable discussion concerning the many fraudulent trademark notices that owners of federal-registered trademarks receive. Members of the public are invited to speak from both headquarters and at the Midwest Regional Office to share their experiences and discuss how to address the problem.
