Trademark Office Proposes Lower Filing Fees

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued a press release to accompany its proposed set of new rules that include lower filing fees for trademark applications.

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.
