What’s the impact of the mandatory electronic filing rule change?
Learn about the new mandatory electronic filing requirement and how this affects specimens, the petition process, outage procedures, and TEAS forms. Beginning February 15, 2020, trademark applicants and registrants will be required to file trademark applications and related documents using the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS). Applicants and registrants must also provide an accurate email address so that the USPTO can contact them. Implementation of end-to-end electronic processing will result in faster processing times and fewer errors.
