Post-Publication Correction of U.S. Trademark Applications

On August 28, 2006, The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office announced new "Procedures for Submitting Amendments/Corrections to Trademark Applications After Publication."

Under the new procedures, once an application has been “approved for publication” by the examining attorney, all amendments and requests for corrections are processed as amendments/corrections after publication. All such post-publications amendments/corrections should be submitted no later than 6 weeks after the publication date to insure that the amendment/correction can be considered prior to the issuance of the notice of allowance or registration certificate.

Any requests for an amendment/correction should be faxed to Post Publication Amendments/Corrections at 571-270-9007 to ensure that they become part of the record for the relevant application. Requests to correct minor typographical errors entered by the USPTO, inquiries regarding the procedure for submitting a post-publication amendment, or questions regarding the status of a post-publication amendment can be e-mailed to TM Post Pub

Call the Trademark Assistance Center at 1 800 786-9199 for help on trademark matters.

Thanks for your newsletters. They are very informative.

I recently had to check with the PTO on the new trademark post-publication correction procedures (also reported in your recent newsletter) in my role as the trademark chairperson for the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s IP Section. The PTO informed me of the following: 1) the correct email for questions is, not the one listed on their website; 2) the email address is for questions only; corrections must be filed by fax.
