Updated trademark rules: electronic filing, applicant email and specimens
USA | 30 March 2020

The widest-scale change is the requirement for electronic filing of all submissions to the USPTO. However, additional application and specimen requirements are likely to have a greater effect on applicants, as compared with prior practice.
