Trademark Seminar

   The Office of the Assistant Commissioner for Trademarks is organizing a
seminar to be held Thursday, November 10, 1994, at the Hyatt Regency in
Crystal City (2799 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, Va. 22202)
concerning the telecomunications industry. The seminar will inform the
Examining Attorneys of the Trademark Examining Groups about the recent
advances in the industry and will discuss the new terminology that is
being used to identify and describe these new technologies. The program
will last the entire day, from about 10:00 AM until about 4:00 PM. The
morning segment will consist of presentations by invited representatives
from various facets of the telecommunications industry with the goal of
educating the attorneys in the new technologies that have developed in the
field over the last few years. The afternoon session will be less formal
and will consist of a round-table discussion between industry
representatives and Examining Attorneys during which actual
identifications of goods or recitations of services will be considered.
   This seminar will be open to individuals other than Trademark Office
employees. Participation will be limited to approximately 50 non-PTO
attendees due to space constraints of the meeting room. Admission will be
on a first come, first serve basis. The seminar is being held for
informational purposes only and active participation will be limited to
invited industry representatives and PTO employees only. For further
information, contact Jessie Marshall, Administrator for Trademark
Classification and Practice at (703) 308-8900.
