Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 120 / Monday, June 23, 2014 / Notices authorization for threatened and endangered marine mammals and, if appropriate, authorizing incidental take. However, following Transco’s amendment to their request, the Permits and Conservation Division and the Northeast Regional Office concluded that take of North Atlantic right whale is unlikely. Therefore, the Project is not expected to result in the take of any threatened or endangered marine mammal species. National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) NMFS participated as a cooperating agency on the FERC’s Rockaway Delivery Lateral Project Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which was published on March 10, 2014 (79 FR 13295) and is available here: https:// www.ferc.gov/industries/gas/enviro/eis/ 2014/02-28-14-eis.asp.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information should be directed to the attention of Catherine Cain, Attorney Advisor, Office of the Commissioner for Trademarks, United States Patent and Trademark Office, P.O. Box 1451, Alexandria, VA 22313–1451, by telephone at 571–272–8946, or by email to Catherine.Cain@uspto.gov. Additional information about this collection is also available at https:// www.reginfo.gov under ‘‘Information Collection Review.’’ SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) administers the Trademark Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1051 et seq., which provides for the Federal registration of trademarks, service marks, collective trademarks and service marks, collective membership marks, and certification marks. Individuals and businesses that use or intend to use such marks in commerce may file an application to register their mark with the USPTO. Such individuals and businesses may also submit various communications to the USPTO, including providing additional information needed to process a request to delete a particular filing basis from an application or to divide an application identifying multiple goods and/or services into two or more separate applications. Applicants may seek a six-month extension of time to file a statement that the mark is in use in commerce or submit a petition to revive an application that abandoned for failure to submit a timely response to an office action or a timely statement of use or extension request. In some circumstances, an applicant may expressly abandon an application by filing a written request for withdrawal of the application. The rules implementing the Act are set forth in 37 CFR Part 2. These rules PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35533 mandate that each register entry include the mark, the goods and/or services in connection with which the mark is used, ownership information, dates of use, and certain other information. The USPTO also provides similar information concerning pending applications. The register and pending application information may be accessed by an individual or by businesses to determine the availability of a mark. By accessing the USPTO’s information, parties may reduce the possibility of initiating use of a mark previously adopted by another. The Federal trademark registration process may thereby reduce the number of filings between both litigating parties and the courts. II. Method of Collection The forms in this collection are available in electronic format through the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS), which may be accessed on the USPTO Web site. TEAS Global Forms are available for the items where a TEAS form with dedicated data fields is not yet available. Applicants may also submit the information in paper form by mail, fax, or hand delivery. III. Data OMB Number: 0651–0054. Form Number(s): PTO Forms 1553, 1581, 2194, 2195, 2200, and 2202. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits; not-for-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 292,706 per year. Estimated Time per Response: The USPTO estimates that it will take the public from 5 minutes (0.083 hours) to 30 minutes (0.50 hours), depending on the complexity of the situation, to gather the necessary information, prepare the appropriate documents, and submit the information to the USPTO. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Burden Hours: 63,981. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Cost Burden: $24,888,609. The USPTO expects that the information in this collection will be prepared by attorneys at an estimated rate of $389 per hour. Therefore, the USPTO estimates that the respondent cost burden for this collection will be approximately $24,888,609 per year.

TOTALS Estimated Total Annual (Non-Hour) Respondent Cost Burden: $37,707,606. There are no capital start-up, maintenance or recordkeeping costs associated with this information collection. However, this collection does have annual (non-hour) cost burden in the form of postage costs and filing fees. Applicants incur postage costs when submitting information to the USPTO by mail through the United States Postal Service. The USPTO estimates that the majority of the paper forms are submitted to the USPTO via first-class mail at a rate of 49 cents per ounce. Therefore, the USPTO estimates that with 4,091 total paper submissions, the postage costs in this collection will be $2,006. The filing fees for several items in this collection are charged per class of goods 363.8 30,007.83 116 4,637 4.33 108.33 16.67 408.33 9.75 320.33 .5 .5 1.67 62.5 5 200 .83 43.33 .5 12.5 63,981 and/or services; therefore, the filing fees will vary for each respondent depending on the number of classes. The total filing fees of $37,705,600 shown here are based on the minimum fee of one class for those items for which a fee is required. 1 .................. 2 .................. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES 2 .................. 2 .................. 3 .................. 3 .................. 4 .................. 4 .................. 5 .................. 5 ..................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) administers 
the Trademark Act, 15 U.S.C. Sec.  1051 et seq., which provides for the 
Federal registration of trademarks, service marks, collective 
trademarks and service marks, collective membership marks, and 
certification marks. Individuals and businesses that use or intend to 
use such marks in commerce may file an application to register their 
mark with the USPTO.
    Such individuals and businesses may also submit various 
communications to the USPTO, including providing additional information 
needed to process a request to delete a particular filing basis from an 
application or to divide an application identifying multiple goods and/
or services into two or more separate applications. Applicants may seek 
a six-month extension of time to file a statement that the mark is in 
use in commerce or submit a petition to revive an application that 
abandoned for failure to submit a timely response to an office action 
or a timely statement of use or extension request. In some 
circumstances, an applicant may expressly abandon an application by 
filing a written request for withdrawal of the application.
    The rules implementing the Act are set forth in 37 CFR Part 2. 
These rules mandate that each register entry include the mark, the 
goods and/or services in connection with which the mark is used, 
ownership information, dates of use, and certain other information. The 
USPTO also provides similar information concerning pending 
applications. The register and pending application information may be 
accessed by an individual or by businesses to determine the 
availability of a mark. By accessing the USPTO's information, parties 
may reduce the possibility of initiating use of a mark previously 
adopted by another. The Federal trademark registration process may 
thereby reduce the number of filings between both litigating parties 
and the courts.

II. Method of Collection

    The forms in this collection are available in electronic format 
through the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS), which may 
be accessed on the USPTO Web site. TEAS Global Forms are available for 
the items where a TEAS form with dedicated data fields is not yet 
available. Applicants may also submit the information in paper form by 
mail, fax, or hand delivery.

III. Data

    OMB Number: 0651-0054.
    Form Number(s): PTO Forms 1553, 1581, 2194, 2195, 2200, and 2202.
    Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits; not-for-profit 
institutions.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 292,706 per year.
    Estimated Time per Response: The USPTO estimates that it will take 
the public from 5 minutes (0.083 hours) to 30 minutes (0.50 hours), 
depending on the complexity of the situation, to gather the necessary 
information, prepare the appropriate documents, and submit the 
information to the USPTO.
    Estimated Total Annual Respondent Burden Hours: 63,981.
    Estimated Total Annual Respondent Cost Burden: $24,888,609. The 
USPTO expects that the information in this collection will be prepared 
by attorneys at an estimated rate of $389 per hour. Therefore, the 
USPTO estimates that the respondent cost burden for this collection 
will be approximately $24,888,609 per year.

    Estimated Total Annual (Non-Hour) Respondent Cost Burden: 
$37,707,606. There are no capital start-up, maintenance or 
recordkeeping costs associated with this information collection. 
However, this collection does have annual (non-hour) cost burden in the 
form of postage costs and filing fees.
    Applicants incur postage costs when submitting information to the 
USPTO by mail through the United States Postal Service. The USPTO 
estimates that the majority of the paper forms are submitted to the 
USPTO via first-class mail at a rate of 49 cents per ounce. Therefore, 
the USPTO estimates that with 4,091 total paper submissions, the 
postage costs in this collection will be $2,006.
    The filing fees for several items in this collection are charged 
per class of goods and/or services; therefore, the filing fees will 
vary for each respondent depending on the number of classes. The total 
filing fees of $37,705,600 shown here are based on the minimum fee of 
one class for those items for which a fee is required.
