OMB 0651-0040

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) administers, under the Trademark Act pursuant to 37 CFR Part 2, the various rules that govern the filing of petitions to cancel the registration of a mark, notices of opposition to the registration of a mark, extensions of time to file an opposition, appeals, and other submissions filed in connection with inter partes and ex parte proceedings. These petitions, notices, extensions, and additional submissions are filed with the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB). The TTAB decides inter partes cases and ex parte appeals. The TTAB is an administrative tribunal empowered to determine the right to register as the issue may be presented in such cases. The Chief Administrative Trademark Judge, Deputy Chief Administrative Trademark Judge and administrative trademark judges decide proceedings filed with the TTAB. A panel of three judges decides each case when it is ready for final decision on the merits. The TTAB follows the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure when applicable, and the “Trademark Rules” in 37 CFR Part 2.
