SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Need for Correction: As published, the regulatory and explanatory text in the final rule implementing changes to trademark fees (81 FR 72694; October 21, 2016) are correct. However, certain tables included in the preamble contain minor errors. In the tables entitled “Fees for Paper Filings” and “New Fees for Extensions of Time at the TTAB,” the descriptions for certain fees listed were mistakenly transposed. In the table entitled “Other Trademark-Processing Fees [Extension of time to file a statement of use],” a CFR citation contained a typographical error. Good cause exists to issue this rule without prior notice and opportunity for comment as the corrections are non-substantive and are being implemented to avoid inconsistencies and any confusion that may occur when comparing the items in the tables with the regulatory text. The USPTO corrects the errors as discussed below.

In FR Doc. 2016-25506, appearing on page 72694 in the Federal Register of Friday, October 21, 2016, make the following corrections:

1. On page 72697, in the table entitled “Fees for Paper Filings,” revise the following:

a. In the entry for 2.6(a)(22)(i), the Description is corrected to read “Filing a Request for an Extension of Time to File a Notice of Opposition under § 2.102(c)(1)(ii) or (c)(2) on Paper,” and

b. In the entry for 2.6(a)(23)(i), the Description is corrected to read “Filing a Request for an Extension of Time to File a Notice of Opposition under § 2.102(c)(3) on Paper.”

2. On page 72700, the table entitled “Other Trademark-Processing Fees [Extension of time to file a statement of use]” is corrected to read as follows:
