Subject: Comments on proposed USPTO ethics rules

I am writing in opposition to the proposed changes to the professional conduct and disciplinary rules for agents and attorneys who represent others before the USPTO.

As proposed, they are unnecessarily burdensome, and potentially inconsistent with the rules and ethical requirements imposed by individual states upon attorneys.

In addition, I feel the short time allowed for comment on such a sweeping change in policy was insufficient given the scope of change.

In summary, I am opposed to the proposed changes as identified.

Thank you.
