It is not only the price of oil and gas that is dropping! The US Trademark Office has reduced the filing fees for new trademark applications and for registration renewal applications. The previous filing fee for each class in a new trademark application was $325. Effective immediately, this fee has been reduced to $275 per class. The per class filing fee for US registration renewal applications was $500 per class, and has now been reduced to $400 per class.
So, celebrate the new year by taking advantage of these fee reductions and get to those trademark applications you have been meaning to file.
