Correcting the owner name in online forms

Avoid delays and fees

The trademark owner is the legal entity that owns the trademark. You can correct minor errors in the owner name. To avoid delays and fees, read the general instructions below when you need to correct the owner name. 

If you change the owner name that appears in any Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS) form without explaining why or recording an assignment, if required, you may receive an office action, and your application or registration processing will be delayed until you respond. You might also be required to pay additional fees.
