WASHINGTON — Effective today, the owners of federally registered trademarks and copyrights who recorded their rights with Customs and Border Protection can renew their recordation online through the newly revised Intellectual Property Rights e-Recordation application.
The online tool will enable 32,000 trademark and copyright owners to renew their recordation electronically rather than through paper filings.
The revised application also can be used by trademark and copyright owners to update ownership information, request extensions of time for submitting renewals and to check on the status of pending applications.
For more information, please email the Intellectual Property Rights Branch, Regulations and Rulings, Office of International Trade, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Paul Pizzeck at (202) 325-0057, or Charles Steuart at (202) 325-0093.
