The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) announced today a new rule requiring foreign-domiciled trademark applicants and registrants to have a U.S.-licensed attorney represent them in all trademark matters before the USPTO. This applies to international fashion designers and fashion tech entrepreneurs based outside the United States.

The new rule will go into effect on August 3. Read more on the USPTO’s new trademark rule here.
