USPTO Combatting Scams With Federal Trademark Registration
Author: Libby Babu VargheseDate: September 14, 2021
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is using federal trademark registration to combat the growing number of scams targeting its users. While it is certainly ironic that the USPTO is seeking to register its own trademarks with the USPTO, the more significant takeaway should be the value of obtaining registered trademark protection.
“Like any other brand owner facing infringement by third parties, if we have federal trademark registrations, they will help us take appropriate legal action as needed to protect the USPTO brand from improper use by those trying to impersonate or falsely claim affiliation or endorsement with the USPTO,” David Gooder, Commissioner for Trademarks, wrote in a recent blog post.
