[コメント]2021年1月2日からの米国商標出願のオフィシャルフィーの値上げが予定されています。主な値上げの項目では、出願料ついては、スタンダード350ドル(1区分当たり:値上げ幅75ドル)、プラスが250ドル(1区分当たり:値上げ幅25ドル)です。また、5-6年目や更新時の使用宣誓書の提出は225ドル(値上げ幅125ドル)になります。それら使用宣誓書の提出前の商品削除補正は無料ですが、提出後では補正が1区分当たり250ドルになります。抜き打ち検査(audit)に引っ掛かって、使用していない商品の証拠提出を求められた場合、区分当たり250ドルの補正料は払うか登録を断念するかの選択になりそうです。マドプロベースの出願料も500ドルになっており、マドプロの米国指定の費用も値上がりが予想されます。
