The problem is that the Examining Attorneys treat Appendix D as the sole and exclusive list of acceptable entities. The examples in Example 4 make clear that "corporation" is equivalent to "joint stock company" or GmbH -- but this should be stated expressly in the Practice Tip, and also at the top of Appendix D. The Appendix should indicate that any type of limited liability corporate entity can be referred to as a "corporation," ...more »
It would be better if the list of corporate entity types that are available to be selected from the drop-down list in TEAS were limited to the corporate entity types that exist in the jurisdiction in which the corporate applicant exists. The list is extremely long at present and you have to scroll down through numerous corporate entity types that are not applicable to find the correct one. So, for example, if the applicant ...more »
TMEP Exhibit D is incomplete and should be replaced with a comprehensive source of worldwide corporate entity formation information. For example, Martindale-Hubbell offers a free law digest that provides corporate entity information in virtually all jurisdictions. See https://www.lexisnexis.com/legalnewsroom/lexis-hub/b/legaltoolbox/archive/2009/09/10/martindale_2d00_hubbell-law-digests-now-available-for-your-free-use.aspx?Redirected=true. ...more »
Currently, Appendix D treats LTD. as if it is only used in Commonwealth countries, when it is actually used throughout the United States as an indication of a corporation. This should be corrected.

"Edison State College" in Ft. Myers, Florida intends to change its name to "Florida Southwestern State College" because of a fear (unfounded) that "Thomas Edison State College" of Trenton NJ might file a trademark infringement lawsuit due to its federally registered trademark. I believe that "laches" would prevent such a lawsuit since Thomas Edison State College obtained its trademark registration in 2003 and it knew ...more »
The proposed requirement for relaxation of the currently strict rules against registration of gTLDs makes sense. The AIPLA comments that special rules for registration of gTLDs as trademarks or servicemarks are not needed. The proposed Examination Guideline would allow registration of gTLDs upon proof of : (a) prior registration for an identical mark for the same services or goods, (b) proof that consumers would associated ...more »
Section 1201.03(a) states (in its title and text) that use by a related party “must” be disclosed in an application. But the Section then proceeds to say that that use by a related party “should” be disclosed in an application under §§1(a) and (b). Is it mandatory or permissive? Either way, since TEAS forms reference use by a related party in the alternative, there may be no need to affirmatively disclose the fact. ...more »
