Rules of Practice in Trade-mark
The following rules governing the registration of trademarks and other marks in the Patent Office, and other proceedings in the Patent Office relating to marks, have been adopted and promulgated under the authority of the TradeMark Act of 1946, effective July 5, 1947, and other authority, after publication of proposed rules and a hearing, and consideration of all material and arguments submitted.
In view of the novelty of many of the provisions of the Trade-Mark Act of 1946, it is recognized that changes may be required in these rules from time to time. It is respectfully requested that practitioners working under these rules promptly inform the Patent Office of any proposed changes that appear to be desirable.
These rules were published in the Federal Register for June 19, 1947. In the Federal Register and in the Code of Federal Regulations these rules are Part 100 of Title 37 and the individual rules, there called sections, are numbered with 100 prefixed to the numbers here used, with the decimal point following the 100.
CASPER W. OOMS,
