Patents, Trademarks, and COVID-19

March 20, 2020 by

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has announced that while all of its offices, including the Texas Regional Office, will be closed to the public until further notice, all operations will continue without interruption. Any meetings between USPTO employees and patent/trademark counsel will be conducted remotely by video or telephone. Patent and trademark deadlines will not be extended due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the USPTO has announced that in certain (not all) situations involving the unintentional abandonment of a patent or trademark application due to the effects of COVID-19, certain official fees associated with the revival of such applications may be waived if revival is promptly sought. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any patent and/or trademark related questions.
