On June 28, 2017 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking [Project No. P948404] to amend the Textile Rules (“Rules and Regulations under the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act”) to delete the requirement that an owner of a registered word trademark furnish the FTC with a copy of the mark’s registration with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) before using the mark on labels, and to no longer restrict the use of such trademarks to only those also employed as house marks. Eliminating these requirements is expected to reduce compliance costs while increasing firms’ flexibility. Written comments must be received on or before July 31, 2017.
