United States Patent and Trademark Office OG Notices: 28 August 2007

                      New Mailing Address for Submitting
                        Deposit Account Replenishments

   Beginning on August 27, 2007, checks and money orders that are sent by
U.S. Postal Service first-class mail to replenish a U.S. Patent and
Trademark Office (USPTO) deposit account should be mailed to: U.S. Patent
and Trademark Office, P. O. Box 979065, St. Louis, MO 63197-9000. The U.S.
Department of the Treasury's Financial Management Service, which oversees
the deposit account lockbox for the USPTO, recently notified the USPTO that
the lockbox would be transferred.

   Checks and money orders received at the old lockbox address (U.S. Patent
and Trademark Office, P.O. Box 371279, Pittsburgh, PA 15251-7279) will be
forwarded to the new St. Louis, MO address by an overnight delivery service
through November 21, 2007. Checks and money orders received at the old
lockbox address after November 21, 2007 will be returned to the sender.

   In addition, checks sent to the new St. Louis, MO address will be
converted into an electronic funds transfer (EFT). This means your check
will be copied and the account information will be used to electronically
debit your account for the amount of the check. The debit from your account
will usually occur within 24 hours, and will be shown on your regular
account statement.

   You will not receive your original check back. Your original check will
be destroyed and a copy will be maintained on file. If the EFT cannot be
processed for technical reasons, the copy will be processed in place of
your original check. If the EFT cannot be completed because of insufficient
funds, the transfer may be attempted up to two times.

   Payments to replenish deposit accounts submitted via electronic funds
transfer (EFT) over the USPTO Internet at www.uspto.gov are not affected by
the change to the mailing address. An EFT user account must have been
established to use this option.

   Questions regarding deposit accounts or EFT user accounts should be
directed to the Deposit Account Branch at (571) 272-6500. Questions
regarding this notice should be forwarded to Matthew Lee, Director of the
Receipts Accounting Division, Office of Finance, by e-mail at
matthew.lee@uspto.gov or by fax at (571) 273-6500 marked to the attention
of Matthew Lee.
