Intellectual Property Extensions Resulting from COVID-19

United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)
Currently, the USPTO is not offering extensions to patent and trademark application deadlines. However, the USPTO is offering fee waivers to those affected by COVID-19 in the following situations:

1) Petitions to Revive Patent Applications: applicants who were unable to timely reply to an Office communication due to the effects of the coronavirus outbreak, which resulted in the application being held abandoned or the reexamination prosecution terminated, may file a petition along with a statement to waive the fee.
2) Petitions to Revive Trademark Applications and Registrations: applicants or owners who were unable to timely respond to a trademark-related Office communication as a result of the effects of the coronavirus outbreak may file a petition along with a statement to waive the fee.
