    We’ve seen that the workload at the Trademark Office is massive. All trademark applications must go through two examinations: one to examine the formal requirements (name spelling, address accuracy, application completeness, etc.) and the other to check the substance criteria. If there are any earlier trademarks, or if there is a lack of distinctiveness, or if there is any other absolute reason for denial, the Trademark Office will investigate. It’s a big job to keep the workflow moving and the decisions consistent and accurate. If we assume that each application will take 10M for formal inspection and 20M for substantive examination, the Trademark Office will devote more than 1 million hours of work each year.

      It’s nice to see that the Trademark Office is continuing its efforts to match the workload inflow from the vast number of fresh applications despite the offset caused by COVID-19.
