1301.04(c)    Whether the Specimen Shows Use in Connection with All Classes in a Multiple-Class Application

The same specimen may be acceptable for multiple classes if the specimen shows direct association between the mark and at least one of the identified services in each class. See TMEP §1301.04(f)(ii). If the applicant intends for a submitted specimen to support multiple classes, the applicant should include a statement to that effect and indicate the classes supported by the specimen, but the applicant need not submit multiple copies of the same specimen. See TMEP §904.01(b).
