By Parna A. Mehrbani and Frances M. Jagla
Effective January 17, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has reduced the filing fees for trademark applications. The new per-classification fee for a standard trademark application has been reduced from $325 to $275 per class, if the applicant agrees to utilize electronic correspondence. For those applicants wishing to receive paper notifications and correspondence from the USPTO, the fee will remain at $325 per class.
