USPTO Publishes 2025 Changes to Trademark Fees

Patent Fee

Changes Coming to US Trademark Fees

On March 26th, the USPTO published the proposed changes to trademark fees for 2025. You can find information on the proposal here. The rationale behind the changes is far beyond the scope of what can be covered here, but we’ve highlighted some of the updates below.

In addition to fee changes, there are several changes targeted at improving the efficiency of filing and prosecution, which will lead to several filing options and fees being phased out. We will cover these changes in more detail in a future post. 

If you don’t love the changes, you can leave comments for the USPTO to consider. Just go here to let them know what you think. The deadline for feedback is May 28th.
