活动时间:2019-07-05  点击量:500


Trademark rule requires foreign applicants and registrants to have a U.S.-licensed attorney.


美国于2019-7-2日正式颁布新的商标法规,要求美国以外申请人申请和注册美国商标必须指定美国执业律师来代理,也包括了美国商标异议,撤销等程序.



Q:When is this new rule coming?

新发何时生效?


A:新法生效时间: 2019年8月3日



Q:What if my submission predates this new rule?

如果我的申请在新法实施之前提交呢?


A:Trademark applications and registrations. If someone other than a U.S.-licensed attorney filed your application or application-related or registration-related submission with the USPTO before the effective date of this new rule, and the submission is otherwise acceptable, then the submission will be accepted. But if the USPTO issued an office action before the effective date of this rule, you will need to appoint an attorney if you respond after the effective date of this rule.

如果通过非美国执业律师提交了美国申请或者申请&注册相关的程序,在新法实施之前(8-3号前),如果申请已经被接受了,USPOT将维持接受状态,但是如果在新法实施之后答复审查意见,必须指定美国执业律师代理;



Trademark Trial and Appeal Board proceedings. For foreign-domiciled parties who are not represented by a U.S.-licensed attorney, the Board will suspend the proceeding and issue an order requiring you to have a U.S.-licensed attorney represent you in the proceeding.

美国商标复审和上诉委员会程序程序(异议,上诉,撤销等),如果美国以外申请人的上诉程序为非美国执业律师提交,那么委员会会暂停相关程序并签发指令要求必须指定美国执业律师代理;

Beware of foreign solicitations asking to use your information!
谨防国外代理请求使用美国律师的代理资质;(申请人也要慎重考虑违规的后果)

Sanctions for violating these rules could include striking the filing, terminating the proceedings, and referring the attorney to the USPTO's Office of Enrollment and Discipline (OED) for appropriate action. In addition, attorneys could be disciplined for such violations, including exclusion or suspension from practice before the USPTO, reprimand, censure, or probation. Attorneys disciplined by the USPTO also may be disciplined by their state bar.
如果不遵守新规得到的处罚可能有: 撤销提交的申请,终止正在进行的程序,给国外代理挂牌使用的美国律师也将会遭到USPTO纪律办公室调查,美国律师也会因此类违规行为受到纪律处分,包括在USPTO被撤销或暂停执业,谴责或缓刑。 受美国专利商标局管辖的律师也可能受到州政府的纪律处分并吊销执照;
