ABA-IPL and Others Submit Comments on Proposed TTAB Rule Changes

The American Bar Association Section of Intellectual Property Law (ABA-IPL) has submitted comments on the proposed TTAB Rule changes. In its letter (here), it requests that the PTO extend the comment period for sixty days in order to allow the Section to more fully analyze and comment on the changes. The Section indicates its belief that the proposed mandatory disclosure provisions will discourage, rather than encourage, early settlement, and will lead to more highly-contested discovery motion practice.

Among other comments collected at the TTAB-Rules blog are those submitted by:
  • Fross, Zelnick (here).
  • Ostrolenk, Faber (here)
  • Jane Shay Wald (here)
  • Dickinson Wright (here)
  • Arent Fox (here)
