Roundtable on the implementation of the Trademark Modernization Act
The USPTO held a virtual roundtable on March 1, 2021 to gather input on issues relating to the implementation of the Trademark Modernization Act of 2020 (TMA). After a brief overview of the TMA, members of the public were invited to provide comments. The TMA, which was signed into law on December 27, 2020, and will be implemented by December 27, 2021, gives the USPTO and trademark owners additional tools to reduce trademark clutter and better protect the integrity of the U.S. trademark register.
