Okay, folks, the letter to the Acting Commission for Trademarks is now locked, but for correction of clear errors such as misspelled words or factual mistakes. There is a new paragraph in the middle about the rulemaking timeline and I would be grateful if people can check it for correctness.
Anyway the point now is to round up a lot of signatures. As of just now on Monday afternoon we have more than eighty-five signers who collectively represent about eighty-seven thousand trademark filings and prosecutions-to-issuance over ten years and who collectively represent about sixty million dollars in fees paid to the USPTO over ten years.
So let’s please have a real push now to get as many signers as possible. Of course one cannot know for sure what might make a difference to the Acting Commissioner for Trademarks, but having a larger number of signers might make a difference.
