Examination Guide 3-19 Examination of Specimens for Use in Commerce:Digitally Created or Altered and Mockup Specimens July 2019

According to the USPTO Commissioner of Trademarks, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has seen a significant increase in the number of applicants who are not fulfilling their legal and ethical obligations to file accurately and in good faith, particularly with respect to claims that the mark is in use in commerce. After studying the problem, the USPTO made two changes in application procedures designed to improve the overall quality of applications: (1) a new rule requiring foreign trademark applicants and registrants to be represented by a US-licensed lawyer, and (2) a new Examining Guide focused on detecting and rejecting falsified purported specimens of use in commerce.  Applicants can expect a higher level of scrutiny of their applications, particularly where the applicant is based outside the United States.
