The new rules propose to lower the government filing fees by $50 per class. The reductions would reduce applicaitons filed by the online TEAS process from $325 per classs to $275 per class and TEAS+ applications from $275 to $225 per class.
Trademark renewals filed using the online TEAS system will drop from $400 to $300 as well.
Written comments on the rules are due by June 23, 2014. The rules are expected to be finalized after that date unless a suprising comment is submitted.
