USPTO Fake Specimen Informant Program


The USPTO launched a new pilot program where anyone can submit evidence of false specimens, with certain limitations and criteria. To submit to the new program, concerned individuals, companies, or anyone else may submit an e-mail to the USPTO’s special pilot program email address.

The e-mail must include either:
1. Objective evidence of third party use of the identical image without the mark in question. For example, this could include the page of a stock image website or other website showing the underlying image without the alleged trademark superimposed on the image or
2. The prior registration numbers and/or serial numbers of applications in which all use identical images of objects, mockups of websites, etc., all bearing different marks.

These protest emails must be received no later than the 30th day after publication for opposition.
