WARNING: Solicitations That May Resemble Official USPTO Communications

Clients continue to report to us that they are receiving confusing and misleading solicitations that resemble communication from the USPTO. Additionally, such solicitations offer legal services or tracking services that may be misleading to trademark applicants or owners.  The USPTO has taken the time to post a warning on their website that discusses these types of solicitations and provides examples of the types of solicitations commonly reported.  Trademark owners and applicants should review this information and the examples provided to avoid being mislead.  Provided here is a link to the USPTO warning: http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/solicitation_warnings.jsp
