Orders issued by the Commissioner for Trademarks

The Commissioner for Trademarks possesses the authority to manage and direct all aspects of the activities of the USPTO that affect the administration of trademark operations. This includes the authority to exclude a person from serving as an attorney, correspondent, signatory, or domestic representative in trademark matters before the USPTO, when appropriate.

All attorneys and agents practicing before the USPTO in trademark or patent matters are subject to the USPTO Rules of Professional Conduct set forth in 37 C.F.R. §§ 11.101 et. seq. and disciplinary jurisdiction under 37 C.F.R. § 11.19(a).  Additionally, unauthorized individuals who represent others before the USPTO are subject to the disciplinary jurisdiction of the USPTO. See 37 C.F.R. § 11.19(a).

If, based on a review of the USPTO’s application and registration records, the Office of the Commissioner for Trademarks suspects that a party is engaging in unauthorized practice of trademark law or otherwise improper activities before the USPTO, the Commissioner may issue a show-cause order. A show-cause order requires the party receiving it to establish the legitimacy of its activities and to explain why the party should not be excluded from appearing before USPTO. Depending on the party’s response, a show-cause order may be followed by an exclusion order, which formally excludes the party from serving as an attorney, correspondent, domestic representative, and/or signatory in trademark matters before the USPTO.

Below are show-cause orders and exclusion orders issued by the Commissioner for Trademarks, organized by date of issuance. See 37 C.F.R. §§ 2.17 and 11.14 regarding representation of others before the USPTO in trademark matters. Questions regarding practice before the USPTO may be directed to the USPTO’s Office of Enrollment & Discipline.

As a result, these documents are not compliant with Section 508. If you have difficulty accessing the information in these documents, please email TMPolicy@uspto.gov to request assistance.
