Small business owners: trademark filing fees — up or down?

If you own a small business and are thinking about registering your service mark or trademark, this post is for you.

October 22 is the new deadline for submitting comments to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) regarding a fee change. To encourage applicants to file electronically, the USPTO is considering adjustments to its fee schedule. In a nutshell, applicants filing electronically would get a discount, while paper-filers would pay more. 

At present, the fee for a paper application is $375.00 and filing online via TEAS Plus will save you $100.00.
