(Update: the Commissioner for Trademarks says we will get all of our “asks”. See blog article.)
Today fifty-four trademark practitioners sent a letter to David Gooder, the Commissioner for Trademarks, asking among other things that the docket number field in the Trademark Office systems be expanded from 12 characters to 25 characters and that the address fields be expanded. You can see the letter here. The letter got sent by Priority Mail Express, and you can track the envelope here. It should get delivered on Monday, August 9. I will also forward a PDF of the letter to Commissioner Gooder by email.
Let’s think some thanks and some positive thoughts in the direction of the fifty-four practitioners who signed this letter.
