USPTO Seeks Comments on Proposed Trademark Fee Reduction

"The USPTO has issued a notice of proposed rulemaking [full text here] relating to the reduction of certain application and renewal fees (79 FR 26664 (May 9, 2014)). The notice proposes a new application filing option, to be known as TEAS Reduced Fee ("TEAS RF"), which will reduce the fee for applications filed using the regular TEAS application form if the applicant authorizes e-mail communications and agrees to file all responses and other documents electronically during the prosecution of the application. In addition, the notice proposes to reduce the fee for TEAS Plus applications and the fee for a TEAS application for renewal of a registration."
