What You Need to Know about the USPTO’s Post-Registration Audit Program

1:40PM - 2:50PM (ET)

As part of its effort to address the problem of deadwood on the register, the USPTO implemented a random post-registration audit program in December 2017. Fross Zelnick attorney Allison Ricketts will teach you about the program’s results so far and how to prepare your clients to pass the audit in the event their registration is selected for audit. This program will discuss best practices for locating and preserving proof of use during the relevant period and counseling clients on strategic considerations for claiming use of goods and services in their registrations.
