Roundtable on the notice of proposed rulemaking on the Trademark Modernization Act
The USPTO held a virtual roundtable on June 1, 2021 to take comments and answer questions regarding the notice of proposed rulemaking to implement the Trademark Modernization Act of 2020 (TMA). After a brief overview of the TMA, members of the public were invited to provide comments and ask questions. 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.
