Notice from the PTO re Today’s Closing


The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is closed today, Monday, March 3, 2014. Trademark Electronic Application Submission (TEAS), Trademark Electronic Application Submission International (TEASi), and Electronic System for Trademark Trials and Appeals (ESTTA) remain available for use, and trademark filings therefore can be submitted electronically despite the closure. Nonetheless, any action or fee due on Monday, March 3, 2014, will be considered timely on the next succeeding business day on which the USPTO is open. Because the forms cannot be reprogrammed to accept delayed filings, if customers choose to file tomorrow, they will need to employ workaround procedures, which may include filing petitions. Thus, it is strongly recommended that any submissions due today be filed today, if possible.
