Virus scanning software release highlights

The online TEAS and TEASi forms were updated on Saturday, February 13, for system enhancements.

All TEAS and TEASi forms

Audio and visual file scanning

Updated the forms to scan for viruses within all media files that users attempt to attach within the forms. Examples of media files include specimens of use and sound trademarks. Files that fail the scanning will not be uploaded to the form for submission.


Added a survey link to TEAS filing e-receipts to allow users to share important feedback regarding their filing experience.

Specimen URL and date of access fields

The TEAS forms have been updated to now include the ability to add multiple fields where the URL and date a website was accessed can be provided in connection with an uploaded specimen of use.

Contact information

Updated contact information for receiving general trademark information or technical assistance has been added to the forms.

Examples of the acceptable electronic signature format have been added directly below the Signature field on the forms to help alleviate customer confusion.
