1613.07(e)    Correction of Mistake in Setting Forth the Name of the Holder

If the affidavit or declaration was filed by the holder of the registration, but there is a mistake in the manner in which the name of the holder is set out in the affidavit or declaration, the mistake can be corrected. See In re Atlanta Blue Print Co., 19 USPQ2d 1078 (Comm’r Pats. 1990). No deficiency surcharge is required in this situation.

See TMEP §1613.07(a) regarding an affidavit or declaration mistakenly filed in the name of a person or existing legal entity who did not own the mark as of the filing date.

See TMEP §1201.02(c) for examples of correctable and non-correctable errors.
