Agency: Department of Commerce, Patent and Trademark Office
The United States Patent and Trademark Office (``USPTO'') requests comments on a modified plan to remove the paper search collection of marks that include design elements from the USPTO's Trademark Search Facility and replace them with electronic documents. The USPTO has determined that the paper search collection is no longer necessary due to the availability and reliability of the USPTO's electronic search system.
