As part of our ongoing efforts to protect the integrity of the U.S. trademark register, all trademark filers will need to verify their identity with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) starting in early 2022. There are several verification options, including a secure electronic process provided by ID.me. Whether you're a seasoned trademark practitioner or small business owner, register now for this special webinar tomorrow, December 14, from 3-4:30 p.m. ET, for an overview of the identity verification process and its specific requirements, including:
- Selecting a filing role
- Electronic verification using ID.me
- Notarized paper form verification
- Attorney sponsorship for support staff
- Grace period and electronic signatures
A question-and-answer period will follow the presentation. You may submit your questions before the event to TMFeedback@uspto.gov.
