Subject: Proposed Rule Regarding Filing Trademark Correspondence by Express Mail or Under A Certificate of Mailing (02-29-2008)

You have likely received other comments relating to this, but it does not appear that the issues surrounding the filing of a request to divide have been considered. Although extension request and statement of use forms are available for electronic filing, request to divide forms are not, at least as of this date. Accordingly, it is impossible to file a request to divide, together with the associated documents (generally an extension request and a statement of use), by any means other than on paper. Thus, eliminating the certificate of mailing procedure for extensions of time and statements of use (at least when these documents accompany a request to divide), would certainly seem to create a hardship, given there is no other option for filing.

Thanks for your consideration.
