The United States Patent and Trademark Office sent an e-mail notifying stakeholders of an alarming ongoing scheme to hijack trademark files. Apparently, there has been a number of unauthorized changes made to active trademark applications and registrations. It seems that these changes are part of a larger scheme to register the marks of others on third-party brand registries. If a change is made to an application or registration an automated e-mail is immediately sent out by the USPTO. If you receive one of these e-mails do not ignore it.
