Reduction of Application and Renewal Fees Proposed


The USPTO has issued a notice of proposed rulemaking relating to the reduction of certain application and renewal fees (79 FR 26664 (9 May 2014)). The notice proposes a new application filing option, to be known as TEAS Reduced Fee (“TEAS RF”= Trademark Electronic Application System Reduced Fee), which will reduce the fee for applications filed using the regular TEAS application form if the applicant authorizes e-mail communications and agrees to file all responses and other documents electronically during the prosecution of the application. In addition, the notice proposes to reduce the fee for TEAS Plus applications and the fee for a TEAS application for renewal of a registration.

The full notice is available under “Proposed Rules” here. Comments must be received by 23 June 2014 to ensure consideration.
