807.07(c)    Color Drawings Filed With an Incorrect Color Claim

When the color shown on the drawing page in a paper application, or on the digitized image of the drawing in a TEAS application, is inconsistent with the color claimed in the written application (e.g., the mark is shown in blue on the drawing, but the color claimed is orange), the drawing controls.  The color claim may be corrected to conform to the drawing.  The drawing may not be corrected to conform to the color claim, unless the examining attorney determines that the amendment is non-material.
