USPTO Announces Next Round of Coronavirus Extensions

In the past few months, the USPTO has made a number of extensions and changes in response to the spread of coronavirus. Previously, the USPTO had extended deadlines that would have come between March 27 and April 30 by 30 days and then deadlines from March 27 to May 31 to June 1st for those affected by the virus.

Now the USPTO has announced a further extension to July 1st for small and micro entities. Additional extensions for entities of all sizes will remain available on a case-by-case basis through the filing of an extension of time or petition to revive, with the revival petition filing fee waived for those abandoned before June 30.

Any questions or concerns regarding your applications or other USPTO matters can be brought to us at info@maierandmaier.com.
