On Saturday, March 4, 2023, we updated the forms to resolve technical issues and incorporate enhancements based on stakeholder suggestions.
All TEAS and TEASi forms
- Corrected the forms to remove the display of “Updated” and “Proposed” owner, attorney, and correspondence information in the input table and text form when no changes were made.
- Removed the telephone number warning messages that appear when owner, attorney, or signatory phone numbers are not provided.
- Clarified the wording appearing below the attorney bar number entry field with additional instructions.
- Revised the image size error message appearing when the image pixel count of the trademark drawing file is too large. Message enhanced to recommend using a basic image-editing tool to adjust the size of the trademark drawing.
- Made technical enhancements to reduce down time during TEAS or TEASi deployments.
