USPTO® – US Federal IP Agency Secures Registered Trademarks in Effort To Tackle Fraud
World Trademark Review reports that the US Department of Commerce has successfully secured registration of four “USPTO” trademarks as part of its ongoing anti-scam efforts. The application filings, made twelve months ago, came weeks after WTR called for the US Patent and Trademark Office to protect its own brand in the fight against fraud and scams by obtaining registered trademark protection. WTR acknowledged the call by Leason Ellis attorneys Peter Sloane and Matthew Frisbee for the USPTO to register its own marks. At the time, the two stated that there is “a certain irony in the agency vested with registering marks used in commerce not protecting its own.” Stay tuned to see how the USPTO will enforce its newfound registered rights.
