Allow me to introduce your Mentor!

Completely Separate Charts for Trademarks and Patents Fees

I received the booklet giving all the fees for the different things such as trademarks, patents, miscellaneous fees, etc. I think that if they separate the chart into categories and send only that part to the person applying for a specific thing. For example, if I was applying for a trademark, I would only receive the chart that pertains to the fees for trademark registration.

Owning an Idea!

I notice that there is a section called Ideas you Own. How do you own the Idea and what is that section for? I don't understand if I'm doing something wrong or it just isn't an option I'm allowed to utilize.

Instructions for the Applications

When filling out all of my applications, when I was trying to fill out certain applications, I would click on the link to get instructions, and noticed that the instructions were for multiple applications. What if they create a link for the application instructions for the specific application instead of all of them?

Feedback on Trademark Docket

As Commissioner Denison encouraged at the recent AIPLA TM Committee meeting, I tried out the docket feature and here are comments/feedback. 1.

MyUSPTO Notifications

I have received the same email notifications for 8 trademarks each day for the past 4 days. The status is the same as the previous notifications but when I look at the mark online the status has been updated. I have not received the new status update notifications.

Cited Art

It would be great if users could upload all the cited art associated with an IDS at one time like a Dropbox-type mechanism rather than one-by-one.

Better document descriptions

The document descriptions need to be set up a better way with more consistency as well as updated to include more types of documents. Possibly even a write-in field could be added so users can label their documents more specifically than "miscellaneous incoming letter."

IDS form

The IDS form should be redesigned to be more manipulateable - i.e., the ability to delete rows in the middle or at the top of a section, and the ability to paste in a column of patent numbers (for example) from an Excel spreadsheet rather than having to input each line one-by one.
