I write in response to the request for comment on the proposed change to allow for user modifications of the description of goods and services associated with registered trademarks. It is a great idea to allow for changes to be made, but only after each mark has been accepted onto the Register. My clients would appreciate the ability to change the description so that the description matches the actual use in commerce. There should be some oversight for approval of each change made so that descriptions for one class do not bleed into another class over time. Perhaps this oversight could be done by USPTO personnel or by the public.
