E-Filing for Trademark Submissions Mandatory Soon

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) informs that electronic filing for trademark submissions will become mandatory with limited exceptions as of December 21, 2019.

Trademark applicants and registrants will be required to:
- File their trademark applications and documents concerning trademark applications and registrations online using the USPTO's Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS).
- Provide and maintain an accurate email address for receiving correspondence from the USPTO about their particular application or registration.
- Provide and maintain an accurate postal address to ensure that the USPTO can contact them if their email correspondence address doesn't work.

With limited exceptions, paper and fax submissions will no longer be accepted. Email submissions will continue to not be accepted. Only informal communication regarding your application or registration can be done by email.
