US Patent and Trademark Office Announces New Trademark Fees and Fee Increases for 2021

On November 17, 2020, the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) announced upcoming changes to its filing fees. Starting January 2, 2021, the USPTO will charge new fees and increase fees for a variety of trademark filings. Some of the USPTO’s stated justifications for implementing the fee changes include plans to modernize technology and increased operating costs.

Prospective trademark applicants and current registrants should consider submitting eligible filings and new applications in the final weeks of 2020 to avoid the increased fees.

This chart outlines the filing fee changes.
