USPTO to cease emailing full trademark office actions (updated 4/27)March 19, 2007

In an effort to simplify transmittal of trademark office actions, the USPTO today announced that it will soon stop emailing trademark office actions to applicants. Instead, emails will be sent containing a link to the office action in the TDR (Trademark Document Retrieval) system. This will avoid the problems of large attachments requiring multiple emails to send the complete office action, as is sometimes necessary when multiple pieces of evidence are cited by the examining attorney. No word on when the change will be implemented: the press release simply states that the change is "coming soon."

Update (4/27): The USPTO has posted an updated notice, indicating that applicants will be notified by email regarding this change on or about May 26, 2007.
