More Comments Submitted on Proposed TTAB Rule Changes

Merchant & Gould has today submitted comments to the USPTO regarding the proposed TTAB Rule Changes. Its letter summarizes the concerns raised at the firm's "Webinar" held this morning. The firm has joined the chorus requesting that the TTAB hold a hearing and permit testimony on the proposal. The Merchant & Gould comments are found here.

In addition, Jack Clifford, trademark owner and trademark lawyer, has submitted comments, and he has provided me with a copy of same for the benefit of TTABlog readers. Mr. Clifford's letter is found here.

Comments must be submitted by March 20, 2006. The TTAB-Rules blog reports that the Board is contemplating extending the time for comment and holding a public hearing.
