New Look for USPTO Website

January 11, 2012, 04:25 PM

If you regularly use the website maintained by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”), be aware that its home page has changed. In late December 2011, the USPTO rolled out a new home page for its website at The USPTO had received feedback indicating that its home page was too text heavy so the USPTOs redesign is aimed at making the website more accessible to its users. For those who miss the old home page, it still is accessible via the USPTOs website until the end of February 2012. The USPTO also has created an email so that users can send comments on its new home page. This is the first of several improvements that the USPTO plans to make to its website in 2012. —Kristan B.
