Department of Commerce seeks federal registration of USPTO marks

David Gooder, the Commissioner for Trademarks, stated that “Like any other brand owner facing infringement by third parties, if we have federal trademark registrations, they will help us take appropriate legal action as needed to protect the USPTO brand from improper use by those trying to impersonate or falsely claim affiliation or endorsement with the USPTO.
