As I wrote about in my post last month, the USPTO issued a 30-day extension on the time to file certain trademark-related documents or fees that would have been due between, and inclusive of, March 27, 2020 and April 30, 2020. This was in response to the CARES Act, which gave the USPTO and the Register of Copyrights the authority to modify statutory deadlines in light of the pandemic.
The USPTO has once again exercised this authority. On Tuesday, the USPTO announced that it is further extending certain trademark filing deadlines - including notice of oppositions, responses to Office actions, and renewal applications. Documents that would otherwise have been due between March 27, 2020 and May 31, 2020, inclusively, will be considered timely if they are filed on or before June 1, 2020, provided that they are accompanied by a statement that the delay in filing was due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For a full list of extended deadlines, see the USPTO Trademark Notice. In addition, for information on further patent deadline extensions, see the USPTO Patent Notice.
As of this post, the Copyright Office has not issued any additional extensions.
Given the uncertainty surrounding how long shelter-in-place and other pandemic related orders will remain in effect, we can expect that additional deadline extensions may be issued. We will be watching carefully and posting updates as they come.
