USPTO Reduces Fees for Electronic Trademark Applications

Did you know that United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) now offers applicants for trademark registrations a new Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS) known as TEAS Plus?

Trademark applicants that use new TEAS Plus electronic filing system will save $50.00 per class off of the regular filing fee.

In return for paying the lower filing fee, applicants who file using TEAS Plus agree to submit complete applications electronically, and also to communicate electronically with the USPTO about the application.

Nearly 82 percent of all trademark applications filed so far this year were transmitted electronically, up almost 20 percent from the previous year.

Given this recent announcement I’d say the odds are that trend will continue.
