1) "Applicants will have the opportunity to list multiple email addresses" -- there can only be one primary email and any others are to be considered "courtesy emails."
2) "Sound/motion/multimedia files (.wav, .wmv, .wma, .mp3, .mpg, or .avi formats, not exceeding 5 MB in size for audio files and 30 MB for video files) may be filed directly as part of the form" -- this is going to apply for new applications only.
3) There will be a new voluntary amendment form available for "dba" applicants to ensure that section is filled out correctly.
4) "Links for Trademark Information Network “how-to” videos incorporated into appropriate sections of the forms (e.g., at applicant section, drawing section, goods/services section)."
The last point, actually, makes me a bit concerned in that this may provide people a false sense of security when it comes to filing trademarks. There are just so many variables for each and every application that generalized instructions may lull folks into a false sense of complacency. I'll take a look at these videos once they launch and write up reviews for our TradeMark Express blog readers.
Here's the entire press release. Any other changes stand out to you?
