USPTO announces extension of certain patent and trademark-related timing deadlines under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act

 

The USPTO is now allowing patent and trademark applicants to extend certain patent and trademark due dates by 30 days if the filing is accompanied by a statement that the delay was caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. Exemplary reasons for the delay include office closure, cash flow interruption, inaccessibility of the file, travel delay, and illness.
